BitDefender keeps resetting my Power & Sleep Screen Timeout to 15 minutes

Greetings,

BitDefender keeps resetting my Windows 10 Power & Sleep Screen Timeout back to 15 minutes after I already had it or keep changing it to a longer setting. This seems to happen if there is some kind of update to BitDefender.

The only solution I know of is to uninstall BitDefender, reinstall and the problem goes away. Someone else mentioned that they write a startup PowerShell Script using PowerCfg to automatically set this back upon login. So, I might give this a try.

Can you guys please fix this. It's been happening for over a year now and has become extremely annoying. I'm seriously considering not even having the thing installed and using another AV related solution.

Thanks!
