Disable Auto Lock Computer in Windows
I find myself doing this quite often (like a couple of times in a couple of months 😉 ) in Windows servers and workstations.
There are a few ways that I know.
If you are on a Windows workstation, you could uncheck the On resume, display logon screen under the Screen Saver Settings as in the screenshot below.
Though that is not the way I like especially on our development servers. Here’s how to do it via the Group Policy Editor (take a few seconds to take effect)
Start –> Run –> gpedit.msc –> Local Computer Policy –> User Configuration –> Administrative Templates –> System –> Ctrl+Alt+Del Options –> Remove Lock Computer –> Enabled
