Windows 7: Screen goes into lock mode when left idle

Screen goes into lock mode when left idle

Hi,

For some reason my screen goes into the "enter admin password" mode when left idle.

How can I make that stop? I get the reason for it, say if you worked in an office and don't want anyone to use your computer when your away, but this is a home computer.

Thanks in advance..........

You either have the logon screen enabled when the screen saver starts, or you have a password required when resuming from sleep or hibernation. Sleep/hibernation is handled in the power settings: Power options -> System settings -> Password protection on wakeup.

I'm assuming you know how to turn on/turn off your screen saver.
