    Is there a setting to sign off wifi after set time of inactivity?


    I just purchased a new PC with windows 10 and it appears that wifi disconnects if I haven't used it for a while. I am wondering if there is a setting somewhere to control the length of time for inactivity before wifi disconnects?

    :)

  3. Fluctuating Time Zone Setting

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community. Apologize for the inconvenience caused to you.

    I would suggest you to check if the values for “set time automatically” and “set time zone automatically” under Date and Time settings are “ON”. If not, then suggest you to make the vale to “ON” and check for the status.

    If the issue still persists, follow the steps provided below:

    • Press Windows key + R, type services.msc and press Enter.
    • Locate Windows Time from the list and double click on the service.
    • In Genereal tab, set the Startup type to Automatic.
    • Click on Apply and OK.

    Hope the information is helpful. Feel free to write to us for any other assistance with Windows, we’ll be glad to assist you.

    Sign-in taking time after setting up PIN

    Hello Harold,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that it is frustrating when the features don’t work the way there are supposed to. Usually, it takes time to login using the PIN after setting it up for the first time, as Windows optimizes and connects all the applications
    linked to your Microsoft account to give access using the PIN.



    I suggest you to try logging in again and wait for some time to let Windows optimize the PIN for next use.



    However, if you want to remove the PIN you can follow the steps mentioned below.



    1. Login to the PC using password, and go to
      Settings > Accounts > Sign-in options.
    2. Under PIN click on
      Remove.
    3. Enter the password and click on
      OK.
    4. Restart the PC.


    Hope it helps.



    Regards,
