comment Delay the screen lock in Windows 8.1 until some time after the screen turns off
Maybe the option has been removed? If so, hopefully there's a way to do it in the registry.

@DaveRook Nope, that section has "Lock screen preview", "Lock screen apps", and "Camera", and none of those sub-sections have anything regarding the lock timeout, unfortunately. In Windows 8.0 there indeed was something like that in the similar section of the settings.

comment How to prevent “lock” on screen power-off in Windows 8
@Ramhound I can't find the setting in Windows 8.1. Any idea how to do this in Windows 8.1? In 8.0, there was a setting in the Metro-style "Change PC settings" area.

comment Is Intel/Nvidia Optimus technology supposed to switch instantly between GPUs?
@rob Yeah, exactly! Well, I factory reset this Sony Vaio Flip 15 back to factory condition, and the problem still exists right out of the box. If I unplug my charger, I still experience a 1+ second screen flicker. I guess I'll have to return it unfortunately. I wanted to like this laptop.

@techie007 Yeah, i got the answer. But a non-tech-savvy person will get a refund/exchange and not bother "fixing" things and wasting time if he can just get something that "works".

comment Use touchpad while “typing”?
Thanks! This worked! I never accidentally touch the touchpad while typing anyways, so I need the touchpad to work for things like Gimp where you scroll the canvas around by holding spacebar and moving the mouse pointer at the same time.

I think it might've happened when I upgraded to Win 8.1, shortly after turning it on for the first time (it also updated a bunch of Sony software).

I definitely do know though, and it's quite annoying. Maybe it's a driver issue (but why would Sony let that happen?).

@slm Seems like Tim Omaha joined just to answer this question. Too bas he hasn't replied. It'd be nice to get more info on PAR2 files. Never heard of it before.
