Windows 8 Time out Period

My laptop run with Windows 8 Operating system. Always it goes time out and get the logon screen if i am over the call or discussion with my team members for few minutes.Every time i need to open VLC player to run behind so that my laptop never gets lock out if i keep it idle for few minutes

Today thought to get it understand to increase the time out value. Found on tweaking the below registry value can able to achieve the requirement.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\ScreenSaveTimeOut – 1800 (30 minutes)

And also

Right Click Desktop – Personalize – Screen Saver – Change time as needed or 0 for off – uncheck On resume, display logon screen – Apply – Click OK
