    Help disabling the 'turn off after 1 minute of inactivity' option?


    I've looked it all up and tried everything, but in the one place I need it, it won't let me press apply so I can't get it to work. This is really annoying and I'd really like to disable it because I use my computer to draw a lot. Please help...

    My entire cpu will just put the lock screen up and require me to put in the password. It does this if I don't move the mouse or do something for about 1 minute.

    Sorry for the delay.

    1. Do you want to completely disable the lock screen?

    2. Do you want to disable the lock screen on-resume only, then replace it with a screen saver? You will still have a lock screen on startup.

    3. Do you want to increase the wait time for the Lock Screen to appear. If this is the choice, here's the path:

    R/Click Desktop>Personalize>Lock Screen>Screen Saver Settings>Adjust wait time in minutes>Click OK.

    Hope this helps,
    John
