    Windows 10 Logs out automatically ( all sleep/logout settings off)


    Hi There,

    As the title implies, windows 10 automatically logs out. and I cant figure out why.
    This started happening in the last 2 weeks after a windows update.

    -I dont know exactly How long before it logs out but i assume more than 20-30 minutes of inactivity.

    -It's not THAT annoying because it only happens overnight , normally. BUt i'd still like to know why its logging out.

    I'm trying to find the one setting that's making this happen. I cant find it.


    -I've looked at all sleep and power settings. Everything is is set to NEVER in windows 10 settings.

    -in power options turn off display / put computer to sleep is set to never.

    -in advance power settings all sleep settings are set to NEVER ie: sleep , hybrid sleep, hibernate etc.. all set to Never.

    - I know about the System unattended sleep timeout. I did the whole regedit thing to show that setting in power settings. It was Set to 2 minute. I've change it to something ALOT longer like 100000000 minutes But it still logs out.

    -screensaver is turned off. and all checkboxes in screensave are off..

    -It's not a reboot or a BSOD because all apps and everything are exactly the same when I log back in

    -system restore / reinstall is out of the question right now. I dont think my computer is setup to do system restores anyways. and a reinstall is out of the question because i dont have time to figure out / download windows ( i've lost my windows disk/ usb drive , cant afford the time to reinstall all my work apps etc.. etc... )


    Not a super emergency but its driving me nuts that i cant figure out how to just completely Turn off windows 10 from logging out automatically.

    Thanks for any help

    :)

    How to set auto logout after 5 minutes of screen inactivity?

    Our firm just upgraded our conference room computer to Windows 10. We set the screen to turn off after 5 minutes of inactivity, but we prefer to keep the computer on and set it to never fall asleep, so automatic updates aren't interrupted.

    For security reasons however, we would like the computer to automatically log out after the screen is inactive for 5 minutes. The only relevant setting that I've been able to find is under Settings --> Accounts --> Sign In Options:

    I only have two options here:

    • When PC wakes up from sleep
    • Never
    Neither of these work for us, since we set the computer to never sleep. Are there any other options available that would allow us to a) keep the computer from sleeping b) log out automatically after 5 minutes of inactivity?

    Thanks!
