  1. Windows locks after one minute of activity, literally nothing stops it.


    Hello,


    Recently, my computer has decided to lock itself after one minute of inactivity no matter what I do. It's very annoying, because if I'm reading something for more than one minute, the computer locks. I have tried everything I can find to stop it, and nothing works. I've even tried creating registry keys, but to no avail. I already have the password on wake box unchecked and the screensaver turned off. HELP

    :)
