    Changing screen off timer for lock screen?

    Where can I adjust the screen timer for the lock screen? Doesn't matter either on battery or external power, I have all the options set to "never" but anytime I lock the laptop instead of the cool lock screen, it turns the screen off almost immediately. If I click to get the log in prompt, even that will turn off after a few minutes. Where can I change it to always simply display the lock screen and/or log in when not in use? Cant seem to find it anywhere so I'm assuming its in some archaic text somewhere in the file system gnome folders?

    Which release of Ubuntu?
    Afaik lock simply turns off the display.
    Screensaver should able to be set to run in dconf-editor
    (org > gnome > desktop > screensaver)

    Something like this:
