a win10 machine here acts differently recently... on boot, the lock screen shows with no login line in the middle, and no cursor showing. if I move the mouse then click or hit a key on the kb, the cursor shows and I can login. if I do nothing for a minute or so, the screen will go black after about 2-3 minutes... but hitting a key or moving the cursor brings everything back.
i'm wondering if anybody else has noticed this change lately, and which windows update caused it, IF it was an update that made this new behavior.
also if there is any way to tweak the timing of the black screen to show a little more delayed than presently, or always show the logon screen and cursor?
I've done a search online, but haven't found any info about this new (to me) behavior.

I should mention that my current setting in the OS call for the monitor to go black after 20 minutes without an input device being used, so that's not the answer on the black screen at logon, which shows just 2-3 minutes after lock screen shows.
also, this behavior is the same in regards to the black screen happening after a short while of being on the lock screen when locking the computer from the start menu, as it is on bootup.
