K430 ignores windows power options settings

2012-12-05, 4:30 AM

I have a brand new Ideacentre K430.  One of my main annoyances with it is that, regardless of how I set Windows power option settings, it logs me out after just one minute idle time, and then requires a password to log me in again.

 

This is despite my having set the display to shut off after 45 minutes, to never go to sleep, and not to require a password on wakeup.

 

This is really annoying, as my work often involves switching back and forth between the computer and books/papers, so I need to be able to leave it a minute without retyping my password.  Can somebody help?!

Solved! See the solution

Ok, I solved the problem.  Right-click on the desktop, click personalize, then click on screen saver.  Even if you have it set for no screen saver, it still uses the setting there for a period of inactivity to log you off.  This gives you options for delaying that forced log-off, or not requiring a password afterward.
