Try this.

Enable Monitor Power-off on the Logon Screen
"Normally Windows will not automatically turn off the monitor if the system
is waiting at the logon screen. This setting can be used to cause the
monitor to be powered-down when not in use as per the default power-saving
profile."

Hi Asif,

See if this method helps.

Login to a user account and customize the Power Options accordingly (monitor time out setting etc). Once done, close the Power Options dialog box. To export the Power settings of the current user account, type the following in Start, Run dialog:

REG EXPORT "HKCU\Control Panel\PowerCfg" C:\Power.REG

Then, open C:\Power.REG with Notepad. Use the "Replace" option in Notepad to replace every occurence of the string "HKEY_CURRENT_USER" with "HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT". Save the file and close Notepad. Then right-click the file (C:\Power.REG) and choose Merge.

Restart Windows and check if the power settings of the current user account are copied to the logon desktop / Welcome screen.
