POWERCFG /REQUESTSOVERRIDE <CALLER_TYPE> "<NAME>" <REQUEST> issue

I am playing a Microsoft game and every time I go away for a few min the screen would turn off but then the PC hangs when I move the mouse or from keyboard.

So I am trying to edit the power plan so that it won't do that anymore with the below request but it is not working.

POWERCFG /REQUESTSOVERRIDE Process Game.exe Display

I also tried with other processes like wmplayer.exe.

Does anyone know how to solve this?

why not just set them with a mouse?

If anyone faced this issue and solved it then let me know.

Not interested in alternative solutions unless they include 3rd party tools.

The issue is gone after the Windows has been upgraded to a newer version of Windows 10 from the Windows updates that happened 2 times in 2022.
