So I had a friend stay over a few days and had to enable the auto lock feature and ask for a password (yeah "had", I know). Before anything was changed I had power options set to turn off my screen after 10 minutes and not to ask for a pass on resume. Post friend visit I had screen set to power off like same cept ask for a password. Friend left and tried undoing my settings.
I currently have, under power options, Don't require a password selected, power off monitor to never, under group policy "Prompt for password on resume" set to disabled, and disabled password logon under userpasswords2. On the screen saver settings dialog then screen saver is set to none and the "On Resume, Display logon screen" is greyed out and CHECKED. Wait is currently set to 10 however after 1 minute windows autolocks. That started after my frustration with the issue and I changed a setting I can't find anymore. Setting wait to 9999 doesn't affect the 1 minute timer.
I don't want it to auto lock anymore and google found only 1 other person with a similar issue and no one had an answer. I can't figure it out and I fix computers for a living. Anyone have an ideas?
