Why my computer lock me out when I leave for subject of less than five minutes?

Why my computer lock me out when I leave for subject of less than five minutes?  I don't have a password to unlock it, then if not how can I removed the lock feature?

I suggest you to see these steps:

  • Press right on your mouse button when your desktop is visible. A menu will appear.
  • Move your mouse to the bottom of the menu and click on the word "Properties".
  • Look at the tabs under the marked blue title bar "display properties". You should be able to see one marked "screen saver". Click the screen saver tab once. You should now see a small monitor.
  • Look for the dropdown next to the marked buttons 'Settings' and 'Preview '. Click on the arrow down on the right side of the menu drop down.
  • Look at the list of available screensavers. The first menu is marked '(none) '. Click on this title. Once you have clicked on the title, the "Apply" button will become operational.
  • Click on the button apply. Close the display properties window and the Control Panel window. You have now properly disabled your screen saver.

  • Why don't my account log out when I leave Firefox?

    When I leave Firefox my accounts like Gmail and Facebook stay connected. I want to remind the user of Firefox name, but I want it disconnects when I go out. It used to but then suddenly it stopped and now I have to remember to do it every time. I tried different things in options and privacy, but it did not work

    You can adopt the following methods;

    You need not be in private browsing mode.

    Subject: config

    Browser.sessionstore.privacy_level set its value to 1

    {It may not work for all HTTPS sites but I tested it on facebook, gmail and it worked.}

    signon.autofillForms {double click it to set its value to false}

    {Prevents the auto complete forms.} Firefox fill name and the password. {You must open the list of names with a double click in the empty field name}.

    browser.tabs.warnOnClose {make sure it's Boolean is true}.

  • Computer restarts / Log out when he must sleep

    I have not collected very much data on the models that this happens, but I noticed that when I leave my computer unused for a period of time it is restarted or disconnection when she needs to sleep.  Attached to power, I expect to 'wake up' my computer and find that I left him, with the same apps running, same Web sites, etc.  However the machine is disconnect me or restarts because when I come back I need to select the user and or enter my password.  The finder is reset to have left the apps I was running.  I'm not sure if the computer is restarted or just a disconnect.  In both cases it should be only sleep and I should be able to pick up where I left off.

    I think I found the culprit. In the SECURITY AND PRIVACY Menu ADVANCED - he said "Logout after x minutes".  I have that turned off.  Think this should solve this problem.

  • My computer will be Hibernate when asked, but to initialize itself back in a minute or two. Any help?

    When I choose the hibernate on closing menu, my computer, Windows XP, seems to do.   For example, the display shows the usual sequence put into hibernation and the computer turns off.  But in a minute or two, the computer starts back.  All other options, for example closed, standby, etc work fine.

    A hibernation ever acted before?

  • Why my "Downloads" folder lasts more than five minutes to load? (Probably due by MSE)

    I have a very big downloads folder:
    5 419 files
    759 files
    30.0 GB

    I prefer to keep both as - is; However, recently it has started to take several minutes to load in Windows Explorer. Basically whenever I select the folder (either directly under my account user, either by a "Favorites" link), this green progress bar appears in the path box at the top... He continued slowly for a few minutes until what he finished. The real problem that is boring is that, while it is loading, I can't find (indexed), sort, or do anything. (The cursor shows that it is 'work'). In addition, it happens everytime I go in this directory!

    I'm pretty sure that the problem is with Microsoft Security Essentials. Under the resource monitor, subheading 'disc', dozens, or even hundreds of lines appear with the image of MsMpEng.exe (engine of Microsoft Security Essentials), probably one for each file in my downloads folder. In addition, I have confirmed that the problem disappears if I exclude this directory in MSE. However, I of course want to keep the downloads folder (which is probably the most important record to analyze new elements that I upload them!)

    Finally, I must point out that the column 'Date of access' is updated to the current date/time for about 1/3 of the files and all subfolders. I can't find a pattern for which files have their set "consulted" to date; However, none of these values are more than a month (although I certainly do not have access to many of these files for years.) (I.e. all my files are 'accessible' either immediately or in the past month.)

    Most likely, something to mark these files as 'dirty' every time - I access this folder, so pull up the re antivirus engine - check everything. Anyone know what could be the cause? Is that what I can do besides excluding this MSE folder?

    Thank you very much in advance for your help!

    So, how does it work if you uninstall MSE?

    You can allways then reinstall it

    UPDATE (29/07/2012) (SEE BELOW, NOT QUITE RESOLVED.  :()
    As expected, since excluding the 'downloads' folder of the MSE has worked, uninstall MSE also worked. However, I like MSE and want to analyze my downloads folder ;)
    UPDATE: I think I thought of her! In this case, I was running "Process Explorer" (Sysinternals) on Windows startup and pretty much all the time. Thinking that MSE could be analysis all programs that are running, I moved procexp.exe to another folder and set it at the start of this version.
    Once I did, MSE now allows me to open the file downloads without re - check everything.
    My life-lesson from this: If you run an executable file, make sure it is in a different directory other random files, otherwise MSE will constantly check their.
    Thanks for all your help!
    I will update this as "resolved" in a few days when I am sure that it really worked and it is not a chance.
    UPDATE (29/07/2012) :(
    Unfortunately, I see a few problems. First off, while moving ProcessExplorer for this directory he stopped the analysis of each file, each time, I opened the file, it always scans the first time I open the directory each tile. Only after waiting five minutes the first time I can then move freely in this directory. Of course, this is not ideal.

    I did some follow-up work on this:

    • I completely uninstalled MSE. Obviously, it worked. However, I then installed the antivirus NOD32. Guess what? It still freezes when opening the downloads folder! This time, instead of the hundreds of lines of "MsMpEng.exe" - billing in the resource monitor, I see hundreds of lines "ekrn.exe! (I.e., it does the same thing!)
    • I actually just moved into a new downloads folder. I found that can be summed up these kinds of folder names. (I.e., I was able to have a new folder that is displayed when I select "[UserName] / downloads.") In other words, when you download things, it appears exactly the same thing, I'm just getting started with a new directory. However, even if the library and the user subpath now point to the new folder, I change not the absolute path to my old files directory. This way I can keep the countless maps/executable shortcuts, etc. in this mega-file.

    I still think I've hit on something fundamental here. I hope I've learned why I'm causing AV systems across this large number of files, hay son as he shouldn't be testing of thousands of files that haven't changed.

    Thanks again!

    1 during how long have you had the problem?
    2. don't you make changes to your computer before the problem?
    3. what operating system is installed on your computer?

    Assuming you have Windows 7, I would suggest you follow these steps and check if the problem persists.

    Step 1:

    Test in safe mode with networkproblem.

    Step 2:

    If the problem does not occur in safe mode with networking, I suspect the involvement of a third-party software, suggests therefore you can start your computer in a clean boot State, and check if the problem persists.

    Note: Follow step 7 to your computer as usual.

  • Why pdf images are blacked out when the document is downloaded?

    When I download a PDF file from the internet, many of the graphics are blacked out.  In some cases, this seems to happen when it is shading.

    I can usually get rid of the black areas by selecting and delete using the Acrobat X image editor.  We then see the underlying image.

    Just to be clear, this is not a question of being blocked by the author of the images.

    Why is this happening?  Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Finally, I found that the solution is to disable 'replace the colors in the document' in the preferences - accessibility.

  • Why my computer does not delay when I try to watch the video again? It's a constant start and stop and buffering?

    I get a lot of golf maaterials and lesson over the internet.  It became a real pain and a problem for me to keep up with instructions.  When I received instruction to internet and start to play the video it winds and winds and play them for a few seconds then start and stop throughout the presentation.  What can I do to fix this problem?

    If several computers are using the internet at the same time, it might slow down the video stream on a computer (laptop or desktop).

    Or your internet connection is simply not enough fast to stream the videos you want to watch. There are several different speeds for DSL, so the speed increase may help.
