Y560 Screen Turns off Automatically

Hi all,

My Ideapad Y560's screen turns off after 1 minute of being idle.

The current energy management settings says it should do this after 5 minutes of being idle. Any ideas?

Re: Y560 Screen Turns off Automatically

Figured it out. Turns out I had my screensaver set to 1 minute, and it was "Blank". Last I remembered, I had it at "No screensaver". Maybe it got changed when I changed my desktop theme. (this is for Win 7)

Hi jcheng461,

Welcome to Lenovo Forum!

I am a bit curious when you mentioned that you have done the settings in Lenovo Energy Management software but the Win 7 Power Scheme accessed via screen saver does not reflect the same.

I do not have ideapad but ThinkPad with Win XP installed. I notice that whatever i've changed in Power Manager software will be updated in Win XP Power Scheme settings. I'm not sure how ideapad works, but logically both utilities should be sync.

Are you sure have the latest Lenovo Energy management from support site?
