Laptop goes into lock mode about every 15mins

I just got a new laptop. (Dell Windows 7) My work set it up. Its a home and work laptop. It goes into lock mode about every 15mins. Its a pain to have to unlock it all the time. I have went to all the sleep mode setting to no aval. I have administrative privileges.. HELP!
I've tried:
Power Saver, passwords says NO
If you go to Screen Saver, where is says (On resume, display login screen) its checked but grayed out, I can not change it!
I'm not good with DOS...

Hello Luke, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if using step 1 in OPTION TWO in the tutorial below may be able ungray this setting for you, and allow you to uncheck it afterwards.

Screen Saver Password Protection -Enable or Disable

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Lock Windows 7 from XP Mode?
Is there some way so that you have to provide a password to come back into Windows 7 from XP mode? After logging in to XP mode the user can't just minimize it and be back at Windows 7. In other words protect the rest of the computer from XP mode.
