    The PC isn't locked when the display is turned off. It is locked when the PC goes to sleep. If there's a way to prevent the latter, I don't know it.

    In the "power options" control panel, you can set the sleep delay over a large range. "Never" is also an option. You'd lose the power saving advantages of sleep mode, but you wouldn't have to re-enter your PIN when the PC is awakened. (Do you have a PIN defined? 4 digits makes logging in fairly painless.)

    sleep was already set to never, but when i press a key on the keyboard the wake the screen, the PC is locked. happens on 2 different laptops on 2 different microsoft accounts. I would only be like that when windows hello is enabled (fingerprint/IR)
