Screen goes to sleep too quickly

I have an Sat L650 - BT2N15 on Win 7 Pro.  I have put the power mangement settings to 5 minutes sleep on plugged in and on battery, but the screen / computer goes dark / sleep after a minute or so if nothing is happening.  Very frustrating when you try to halt briefly during a presentation, and the computer goes blank.  Touching the touch pad or moving the mouse gets it going again no problem, but it looks bad when your presentation goes dark off and on during the show!

 

Any suggestions?  thanks BKA

1. What happens when you change the 5 minutes to Never?

 

2. Check that a screen-saver setting is not the culprit.

Many thanks, I completely lapsed on this one, never did get around to setting the screen saver timer after I got the new laptop!
