Win7 - AutoLock after few mins.


I am using Windows 7 Ultimate right frm the time it got released. But, after i formatted my HD this time..... i am having a very strange issue.

My windows gets locked automatically after few minutes.
Now, i have no clue why is it happening only this time.

I am running the computer as adminstrator and have no password. The power settings are on High.

So can you help me ?
