    Windows switching to Lock screen?

    I have set everything to "Never" so that my Windows 10 never goes to sleep, yet if I leave my PC (desktop) for a short while, Windows reverts to the lock screen. I have checked and double checked the settings and all are set to "Never".
    Any idea what is wrong and how to fix it please? Or have I missed something?

    System: Power and sleep - Both "Screen and Sleep" set to "Never".

    Personalisation: Lock screen - Background "Windows spotlight".

    Windows 10 home 64bit, version 1909 fully up to date, 32 gig ram.

    Not a fix for the bug but a work around. Personalise - Lock screen - Screensaver settings - select any screensaver then change the time to hundreds of minutes then apply.

    Do you have your phone connected to the PC & have selected dynamic lock?
    If so then when the phone moves out of range it’ll lock the PC.

    Found the problem! The bug is to do with screen saver settings - even though the screen saver is set to "None", the option "Wait 20 minutes" and " On resume, display log on screen" was active..... So it seems that this option was still displaying the log on screen every 20 minutes of inactivity even though the screensaver was set to None.
    Removed the tick from the On resume box and all is now back to normal!

    Thanks both of you for your help.
