22 Oct 2009   #1

screen auto locks

hi guys
i installed this windows 7 manager and now when i go to screensaver options the "on resume, display login screen" is checked and i cannot uncheck it. now my computer locks after 3 minutes of idle even though the screensaver is disabled.

i looked through windows 7 manager and i cant find it anywhere so does anyone know how i can change this back manually?

Hi khakiman,

Have you tried uninstalling the Windows 7 manager to see if that resolves the issue?

It could be an incompatability with one of the tweaks that the manager is trying to use.

not yet. i spent a good 15 minutes tweaking with it so i'd rather nto if i can. i will if nobody else has any idea how to do it manually though because i hate having my screen auto-lock. i use my 360 controller to operate my mouse at night and when the screen is locked xpadder doesn't work so i have to get up and hit enter to unlock it.

I'll be honest, i've not used Windows 7 Manager and don't intend to so it's unfortunately the only advice I can offer. Hopefully if someone else has the software they can check the settings and see if there is anything that may be causing this issue.
