    How to disablelock screen that comes up when display turns off?


    i have a "turn off" display time out in the power options set at 10 minutes, i have done some tweaks to disable the lock screens but that one still comes up! when i leave my computer i want the display to turn off and when i come back i want to just click a couple of times and get back in action. i'm sick of entering my password 8-10 times a day.

    Thank you VERY MUCH! that worked! i guess windows 10 does have some legit settings in the GUI. i thought these must be 100% hidden and only available via gpedit tweaks, thanks again!
