Windows 7: Computer goes to sleep and require logon

Computer goes to sleep and require logon

After so many minutes of non-use my computer will go to sleep and require logon when it is awoken.

I have checked my settings. My screen saver is on, but it is not set to require a logon.

I don't care if it goes to sleep - I do not want the logon.

Just started this yesterday. I don't know what has changed. It is a new pc.

I FOUND IT - THANKS! It was in the advanced settings under power plans. Stupid Dell power plan was over riding my settings.
