Windows 7: Windows idles to login screen

Windows idles to login screen

Hey guys

Whenever my PC is idle for a while (haven't timed it but I think it's about 30 min.) it will switch to the blue login screen. I've never actually seen the login screen since I don't use a password, but I'm assuming it is. Blue screen, shows my name and icon, ease of use button on bottom left, etc. Anyways, I don't really want Windows to DO this, so can someone tell me where I can change those settings? I already tried changing all of the Power settings but it still does it. Oh, BTW I do not use a screen saver either. Thanks.

Only things I can think of are the screensaver settings and power options.

Screensaver:
If you tick the box On resume, display logon screen, Windows shows the logon screen every time screensaver is stopped by moving the pointer or pressing a key.

Power Options:
If you choose Yes in Power Options > Change plan settings > Change advanced power settings> Require a password on wakeup, Windows shows logon screen when resuming from sleep or hibernate. This also happens even you have no password.
