EOS R5 - Is the length of the "Display Timer" adjustable?

pedz

Canon EOS R5

I touch the shutter button and the LCD screen lights up and shows me what the camera is pointing at.  After 30 seconds (for me), it shuts off.  Is this length of time adjustable?  It does not seem to be the "Metering Timer".

I'm trying to set up a rather complex shot and I'd like for it to just stay on until I turn it off or at least stay on for several minutes.  yea... I know its a battery drain but right now, having to keep touching the shutter button is distracting.

Press the MENU button and o to the SETUP menu page 2

Select Power Saving and change the Display off time, with options between 15 seconds and 30 minutes

Make sure that the auto power off time is at least the same was the display off time. Note there's a separate time for the viewfinder too.
