Screen goes black after 1 minute of not using

HP Envy
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My HP Envy keeps dong the same thing. It will go to the sign in screen after only being untouched for a mere minutes. I have made the screen timeout settings all "never" and screen saver settings 4000+ minutes, and it still responds this way. What do I do? I'm extremely annoyed with how many times a day I have to sign in. This is a work computer and interrupts my flow.
