Running Windows 11 21H2 on my desktop PC: I have the screen set to turn-off in 5 minutes. Instead of turning-off the screen, Windows displays the lock screen. Appreciate any ideas. Thanks!

I think the key to your problem is written right there on the screen "screen and sleep settings don't apply when the lockscreen slideshow is playing". Turn off the lockscreen slideshow.

I'm a dummy. I missed that. Thank you very much.
