My laptop locked after I don't use it for several minutes.

2012-01-24, 4:57 AM

Hi everyone,

 

I have a really troublesome problem.

 

My laptop is locked after I don't use it for several minutes.

When I say locked, I mean it turns to where shows my account name and below it says locked.

 

At first, I think it is cause by the Auto-lock .cuz I am really annoyed by it, I uninstalled it.

However it still does not work.

 

Could anyone tell me what the problem is on earth?

 

Perhaps it is just because I am really not familiar with my new laptop.

That's a power setting that determines how long before it enters the screen saver, sleep more, or even hibernation mode. You can change either the requirement of a password (somewhere in the screen saver section of Windows) or the duration before it enters those modes (you should be able to set that with the Lenovo Power Center thing). Of course, doing either is a security risk, but that's up to you as to how much security or comfort you want.
