thinkpad x201i Windows 7, getting logged out after short idle time

I don't know what it is that is logging me out after ~2-3minutes idle to the window logon screen, where I have to scan my finger on the reader. This when I have a power source connected.

 

I have tried to increase all idle timers in power manager to at least 10-20minutes for both batter and power options, but still this problem does not seem go away which is extremely annoying.

 

Are there any hidden timers I could have missed, or is this a bug?

Under your screensaver settings, verify that the system is not set to require a password when resuming from screensaver or sleep.

Thanks for the tip.  It was driving me nuts that time.
