Screen and Power Sleep

Having recent Probs with my screen sleeping after 3 or 4 minutes, then need to re-log in. This prob is recent, having had 7 Ultimate for quite a long time.
Power and Screen settings are set at 30 min.
Help needed please, Driving me Nuts.
Best Regards, Mac

you failed to mention if the machine is a laptop or desktop--try setting power settings to 'high performance' and in the advanced power option--uncheck 'require a password...'--also--your screen saver setting 'may' be activating and there is a setting there to uncheck...'on resume display a logon screen'--that can be turned off.
