    Power And Sleep settings problem.


    Hi.


    After upgrading to the Windows 10 Anniversary recently, I'm getting the following problem in Power and Sleep option using screen and sleep.

    I want to change the “When plugged in turn off after” box from 4 hours to 1 minute.
    Successfully change then I exit.
    Normally, after 1 minute, my screen will dim then go black.

    Now the following happens:
    1. Screen goes to the Login screen
    2. An instance of Chrome and Mozella browsers is launched
    3. Task manager & Open Office is launched
    4. Cortana sends me a msg in the top left reminding me to Water Plants”
    5. If I let the screen set longer, my Photo app gets launched.

    When I tap screen then enter my logon password, all the above apps disappear at desktop menu.
    Anybody had this particular problem or know a solution?

    Thanks.
    TC.

    :)

    Turn locked screen off in Cortana.

    Go to Sign-in-Options > Required sign-in. Set it to “Never”.

    Hi.

    Tried your suggestions.

    But still getting apps launching when i change the “When plugged in turn off after” box from 4 hours to 1 minute.

    Can i revert back to the previous build (before Win 10 anniversary build) until i can figure this out.

    Details please.
