    There is password lock activated in hour system and probably sleep mode too which gets activated in a very short time of non activity.

    Get into the password lock settings and either disable or st a longer time to activate it.

    Set the Sleep Mode to be activated after longer duration in order to solve the password lock issue.

    Method 1: I would suggest you to follow the steps under Turn Off or Shut down a PC from the link and check the status of the issue.
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/w...-basics#1TC=t1

    Method 2: If the issue persists, I would also suggest you to run the power troubleshooter and check if it works.
    Follow the steps to run the troubleshooter:
    1. Press Windows key + C on your keyboard to show the Charms bar.
    2. Type Troubleshooting and click Troubleshooting under Settings.
    3. Now type Power troubleshooter in the search option.
    4. Click on Power troubleshooter to run the troubleshooter.

    Hello there !!!

    it seems that you have set the time limit for your account logout.
    and what i concluded from your statement that,in the system settings you have enabled the system log out after a particular
    interval of time if your system does not respond for that particular period.

    so, in order to get rid of this irritating situation do follow the steps given below ;-

    1. go to control panel
    2. select power option.
    3. go to advance tab.
    4. select system log out option
    5. here uncheck the system log out timing.
    click >>ok >> apply.
    your problem will be sort out.

    hope i am clear to you.
    thanks for posting in EALP.
