My 2 month old T480s is really annoying to use as the lock screen locks the laptop after less than one minutes of not using the keyboard or mouse. The notebook has Windows 10 Pro and I cannot for example watch a video longer than 1 minutes as the laptop lock screen is activated and I have to enter the user PIN or use the facial recognition feature to login back and unlock the laptop.
I have tried all the tricks I found online including editing the (GPedit) group policy administrative template personalization, disabling the screen lock screen using Regedit to change the registry settings, and changing windows 10 Power & Sleep settings.
Are there any BIOS settings that can prevent the lock screen from activating in such a short time or to completely disable it?

Thanks for the reply. I was able to restore the default power plan although my plan was set to never turn off the display. Now the setting to turn off the screen is 10 minutes for plugged in and 5 minutes on battery. The result is the same, nothing really changed. The screen switches off in less than 1 minutes when not using the keyboard or mouse and when I touch the keyboard, the lock screen is displayed.
My T480s has the UHD high resolution screen with IR camera and Windows Hello, could it be the reason why this is happening?

Thank yur very much for suggesting Glance as the main cause for the screen lock. I disabled it from the Task Manager and the problem is now gone. I don't know how to setup Glance as I don't see any options for setup, but for now I don't really need it and my problem is solved. Thanks again for the help.
