I am trying to find out an easy way to prevent my machine from locking after 15 minutes of absence user input. Even though I have Administrator level access, my exroommate has somehow figured out how to have my machine lock after 15 minutes without keyboard or mouse input. (As usual, if I then provide my login password it unlocks.) When I go to desktop screen saver properties, the "Wait 15 minutes, resume on password" is checked and greyed out, so I cannot uncheck it! I'm sure he thinks screwing with my PC is really funny, but it is a massive pain for me.
Does anyone know how I can get this turned off? I would think Windows would recognize my own administrator access and let me change it. Is there a registry setting somewhere for this? I can't afford to reinstall my operating system. Thanks!
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
