Locked out after inactvity
My account locks after the computer is inactive for 5 - 15 minutes. I don't
have a screen saver. Aside from changing the power settings of my laptop to
Balanced, I haven't made any system changes.

I am the administrator of the computer and the only account on it.

Re: Locked out after inactvity
Hello,

try the following:
Go to Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Power Options and click "Change plan
settings". Click "Change advanced power settings".
There, in the lower panel, an entry "Require a password on wakeup" should
appear. Select "No".

Greetings,
P. Di Stolfo
