Hi Lazlow and welcome to the forum!

If you have screensavers active, please check it's setting and remove the check mark on resume, display logon screen.

You'd also want to check your power settings and set every setting on sleep, hibernate and shutdowns to never.

If that is not the culprit, try and have a look at your setting in you Local Group Policy by clicking on Win+R, type gpedit.msc
Navigate to Computer Configuration>Windows Settings>Security Settings>Local Policies>Security Options and check the setting here.

Hope it helps

yea, Mr. Hibernation i presume.

It would be nice if there was a feature to log off users that were acually inactive on the same pc(besides teaching them to always log off which hardly happens around here), with the option of saving things that were possibly open but not automatically saved by the program while open. Possibly "hibernate" that user, until he/she comes back on.
