Windows 7: How do I disable 'screen time - Password'?

How do I disable 'screen time - Password'?

So i was trying to leave my computer running so that it can download Modern warafre 3 over night. But every 10 minutes or so, it blacks out and when i wake it up, it goes straight to the password screen. I have noticed that it messes my download up whne it does so.

I have looked at a couple of tutorials and they all say to go to screen saver settings and turn it off,... it says it was already turned off... What the..?

Any help please?

Thanks
Kev

don't let the computer sleep but even if you want to do that then just set the setting
change advance setting -> require password on wake up - if it yes, -> change it to no. i have set mine to never to both, so that way my monitor or pc never goes to sleep at all. hope this helps.
