I believe that you are refering to the screensaver that clicks in after x amount of minutes.Go to control panel,click on personalisation,click on screen saver.Their you will see a wait till probably ten minutes.Alter it to what you want.I have mine at twenty but the option is yours.This was more for the older type of monitors to prevent a image being burnt into the screen.

Hope thats what you are refering to.
