    Hello,

    I just got an HP Stream 7 because there was a deal on.

    It's not RT is it?

    Anyhoo, I put in all my info - so it logs into my MS account. However, the screen locks out after a few minutes and I have to enter my password. Since I mainly use it at home. How do I prevent this? I found some items under power saving, but basically, I just don't want to have to log in. Screen lock is ok - is there one?

    Thanks,

    Mr. V

    Go to PC settings, Account, Sign-in Options, and at the bottom you can change the timeout for passwords, or remove the password requirement.

    On the desktop, long press for right click, go to personalize, then screen saver, then power options, change when it goes to sleep for battery and plugged in.
