Surface Pro 3 screen saver

I have a Surface Pro 3 on my domain, my GPO for the domain has the screen saver set to come on after 30 minutes of inactivity.  If I go into the options I set that as being set.  I have the Surface docked.  After 66 seconds everytime the screen saver kicks in and I can't figure out how to change this.  If I was on battery I get this but this is very annoying especially if you trying to watch a video or something, any ideas?

hi.

This is not windows 8 specific. See if there's a power management software installed and check its settings.

The only power management software I see is what is in Control Panel under power management can you give me any more information on what you're pertaining too?
I wonder if there's any software installed (apart from windows' own features) that promises to save energy or the like. Clearly, what you experience is no out-of-the-box experience.
I would think that if the surface was going to sleep or hibernating but the screen saver is coming on, so I don't believe this to be power management
