How to stop screen shutting off after just 1 minute?

Yes I have Googled it, I've tried settings/screen and sleep/ shutting down and choosing never, that hasn't worked. Also Control Panel/power options/etc and changing the shut down type to never, still no joy. What to try next? Windows 11 operating system- Asus laptop.

Is the laptop plugged in? what power mode is it set too? if it is set to power saver change it to balanced see if that makes a difference
