Anyone know how to stop windows 10 relocking after about 10 minutes, by going to the lock screen, and requiring the password. It has to be something simple, but I can't find an answer to this anywhere. It happens on one PC I have, but not another. The other just stays on the desktop..   I have got the PC set to turnoff the display after 30 minutes, and sleep disabled. There used to be a setting in windows 7 where you could disable password requrement in the screensaver.

It's very well hidden in Windows 10:

Settings > System > Power & sleep > Additional power settings > Require a password on wakeup > Password protection on wakeup

select: Don't require a password.

Thanks, I will give that a go once I am back on my home pc.  I think that is one of those settings that is still using the old legacy control panel boxes.
