Auto screen lock(NOT SCREENSAVER)

Screensaver is disabled.

After a few minutes, 5 I think, Window 7 lcoks the computer and put up the password prompt.

I have looked through user accounts, security menus, searched web, but can't find anything.

How do I disable/control this?

Screensaver is disabled.

spinlock

PS Screensaver is diabled.

Check the power settings. I'll bet that's what is doing it.

In the screensaver option the " wait 5min on resume display logon screen" is not greyed out even if you have screensaver disabled so if you uncheck it the problem will be solved!!

I will try this when I get home, but it is intermiitent, and it isn't always 5 minutes that I have to wait.

Sometimes 1-2, sometimes MUCH longer 15+.

IMO, THIS IS A BUG, not an option that needs tweaking, but I will look for what you mentioned and try it.
