Windows 7: Windows 10 64 Bit Monitor display turns off after 2 minutes!

Windows 10 64 Bit Monitor display turns off after 2 minutes!

I have three PC's all running the same OS setup but one no matter what I try after 2 minutes the display goes blank, move the mouse and the desktop is there!
I found in link but for Windows 7 there is a term called "System unattended sleep timeout" added to Advanced Power Settings" but cant find anything in Win 10.

This is the link for Sleep Timeout : Power Options - Add "System unattended sleep timeout"
Does anyone have any ideas as to what I can try please?

Turn off all the timeout settings, then if the problem is still there, start working on the monitor. You should not have this problem.

Edit each of the sub-keys. Each corresponds to one of the power plans. If you choose ACSettings (Decimal value is 3600 seconds for 1 hour) you are choosing a behavior for when the machine is plugged in, DCSettings are for battery power.
