Windows logs off?

Everytime after a period of inactivity I'm logged out and get the enter password screen..


I've checked all the power save options and can't think what's causing it, any ideas??

Hello Gazurtoids,

If you have the screen saver turned on, then you might also check to see if you have the on resume, display logon screen unchecked to not have to log in.

In your advanced power plan settings, make sure that the option below is set to No as well.

Hope this helps,
