    I just got Windows 7 home premium. I can't figure what to do. I start windows,and as long as I am using it stays open. But if I do nothing for about 2 min. it goes back to where I sign in to Windows again. Then I have to enter my password again,to get back in to Windows again. There must be a setting for this,but I can't find it. Any help would be appreciated.

    Go into Control Panel, Power Options and make sure that the computer isn't set to Sleep After XX minutes. XX = the number of minutes. It is asking for the Password to wake up.

    To add to ^, there's a setting somewhere that says "prompt for password on wake". Just uncheck that if you don't want it to ask for your password every time.
