    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.

    :)

    Strange system load after ~5 min of inactivity

    Thanks, but in case of disk fragmentation HDD load should be ~100% but in my case this is 0%

    Strange system load after ~5 min of inactivity

    Hello,

    On my notebook Lenovo Z701 with Windows 10 installed I noticed a strange CPU load: after 5 min of user inactivity System process loads CPU at 30%. If I move the mouse, Sysytem process stops loading CPU. Is it a normal behavior?

    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.
    ( ***I have a laptop. If yours is a desktop you will have a slightly different picture. )

    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. *cry

    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 *Devil

    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 ?
