How to Suspend lock screen while reading All with NVDA


 

I should also have stated that the Turn off display and Put computer to sleep settings are present under Plugged-In, as well as, On Battery.  These should also be examined and reset to your liking.

In my case, sleep is set to Never when the computer is plugged in, while it's set to 20 minutes when on battery.

Regardless of the outcome regarding any NVDA setting, Zahra is right that you still need to tweak your power settings to make your sleep when on battery power longer than one minute.

Control Panel, Power Options, Change plan settings link.  Then tweak the two dropdowns under On battery to extend the amount of time before the screen gets turned off and the computer goes to sleep.

Also consider opening Windows 10 Settings, Accounts, Sign-in Options pane, navigating to the dropdown for Require Sign-in - When you've been away, when should Windows require you to sign in again?, and changing the value to Never rather than the default of When PC wakes up from sleep.  This really depends on whether it's your computer, somewhere that only you have access to it, or if it's a work computer in a cubicle where anyone could walk up and wake it from sleep.

hello.
in power options of control panel, you can decide that on battery and
on pluge your computer does not go to sleep.
also, if you wish to read long texts by say all command,
in control panel display,
just disable screen saver.

hi group,



I remember reading the sentence in one of the NVDA Release documents, "run
the read-all command will automatically prevent the computer from going to
sleep". What exactly is the scope of this? Has there been any successful
work on this? I would like to ask if it is possible to enable this function
with a setting. While my computer is on battery, after 1 minute of
inactivity, it goes to the lock screen and then the sleep process begins.
Is
the requirement to run this something I've overlooked?
