My relatively new Yoga 3 Pro (4 months old) inbuild screen goes blacl/turns off after 30 seconds unless I am activity typing or moving the mouse around. The screen still seems to be on and I can see the back-light but the screen is completely black. I have to hit a key or click the trackpad for it to come back on. This happens no mattter what program/app I am using or even if I am just displaying the desktop. It will even happen when viewing youtube videos or reading a pdf. While I have not tried it, I am pretty sure it it will do this when doing a presentation unless I move through the slides within 30 seconds. I have adjuster the timer for the screen to turn off in Power & System settings (tried everything from 2 min to never for both battery and plugged-in) and have disabled Harmony Paper Display (using the Fn+Esc) with no effect. The screen just goes black after 30 seconds no matter what I do. Does anyone know how to stop this from happening.This is really annoying and pretty much makes the computer useless for work.

Did you ever find a solution to this? I have the same thing happening and nothing I do in the power settings make any difference. It happens to laptop display or if I am plugged into an external monitor.
