    I put a fresh install of Windows 7 Home Premium on the computer and it all works great, however, there is a minor irritation. After about 2 min. of non use the screen goes into the "lock" mode. I'm the only user and have administration rights so all you have to do is click on my name and it'll start up again, but I can't figure out to stop it from doing it.

    I've gone to power settings and set it to never shut down the display, never hibernate, etc. but it still goes to the blue screen with my default picture and name. Any suggestions?

    Might be a screen saver setting: "On resume, display logon screen." Even if you are not using a screen saver, this setting puts the PC in lock mode after X minutes.

    That was it! Even though I had "none" selected for screen saver, the box was checked that said after 3 min. display the lock screen. Thanks!
