  1. Thanks for uploading the video

  2. This is the voice of the Biography channel guy!!!

  3. In the start menu just type power options in the text box to quickly get to the power options dialog. You can usually search for windows tools and applications there. It is much faster than clicking around to find things. Remember, as a general tech tip, always search first, then browse. There is a reason google is a search engine and not a browse engine.

  14. thank u very much for ur helpig video. i really like it, its very helpful.

  15. ????????????????????????????

  16. Thank you so much for uploading this. Very thoughtful of you. God bless


    Type Regedit.exe @ "Windows + r"

    and follow folowing link and you can change the lock settings


    On the right-hand side, create a new DWORD 32-bit value named DisableLockWorkstation and give it one of these values:

    1 – Disable Lock Workstation
    0 – Enable Lock Workstation
    The changes should be immediate, no need to restart anything.

  18. For those who are having problem with this-Here's the Solution-
    Go to Start Button>Control Panel>System and Security>Power Options>(In the left side choose)Choose when to Turn of the Display>CHANGE YOUR SETTINGS AS REQUIRE FROM THE 2 LIST BOXES>Click on Save Changes>>Done!

  20. this video is mis-named – it shows how to not require a password entry on the lock screen, it does not show you how to disable the lock screen if you have no password entered.

  21. A very needed video, thanks mate.

  22. I started having this problem of it going to lock screen from yesterday. Computer decided the colour scheme was using too much memory, reset me to windows 7 basic colour scheme and has been going to auto lock screen when idle ever since. It's set not to require password (I don't have a password anyway – the auto lock screen just makes me click my user icon), in screensaver it's set to none and the box for show logon screen on resume in unchecked, all settings in power options are set to Never. Can anyone help? I've looked at so many questions about this online and all or some of the things I've listed have fixed the problem for the people asking the questions but even with all of them done it is still doing it to me.

  23. For those saying it didn't work and complaining about the computer sleeping. This is NOT to stop the computer sleeping, but to stop it requiring a password when it does.  To stop it sleeping, at 23 seconds into the video when he is on the Power options, there is an option there that says CHANGE WHEN THE COMPUTER SLEEPS. go in there to change the settings to what you want. 

  24. It works, if it doesn't work for you, that's probably because u might have some PC problems. Try this: START/RUN/MSCONFIG/BOOT/"no Gui Boot"

  25. I want to get rid of the Ctr+Alt+Delete thing but keep require passwords…
