Do you mean it goes to sleep after 10 minutes?

Go to the control Panel/Power options. Have a look in there. Click change plan settings.

Right click on desktop,personalize\screen saver and change the Wait to 20-30-40----


Or click on start\control panel\display\personalization\screen saver and change the Wait to 20-30-40----


You can also to disable the "On resume display logon screen".


I hope this is the answer\solution you were looking for.
