    Automatic log off after 5 min or so of inactivity


    My system logs off automatically after 5 minutes or so of inactivity. I don't know where to look for to change this option. I am logging in using my hotmail at start up.

    DO you mean 'locks'? Because I have never heard of it logging off unless it crashes.

    Go to power options, change the time the screen goes blank.

    Start button > left side, click Settings > select System > click Power & Sleep > right side, see my screenshot.

    Nope, not "locks", that would have been fine. It simply logs off i.e. I have to sign in as if I have restarted the system. Power Options seem good, its set up as 15min with batter otherwise none.

    Not sure where on earth this setting is sitting.

    Thanks for the pics dude !

    The options I have are set properly, only when system is on battery I asked it to sleep otherwise its always "never". Still the system goes to sleep. **** Windows 10

    Do you have screen saver enabled ?

    In the search box next to Start button, type screen saver > Enter.
    Under Screen saver heading, is the box set at None ?
