After one minute of inactivity screen gets black and Windows lock

for a few weeks I have this specific problem: When I don't do anything on the my notebook for one minute, the screen gets black for a few seconds and then goes on but computer is lock. During these few seconds I can do something for ex. move the mouse and everything comes back to normal. But if I don't computer lock.

It reminds me the power scheme settings but everything is set to never there. I have google this but haven't find anything so please help me!
