My login times out after a short time of inactivity. How can I lengthen that time span?

Q

After I log in to Win8, I am automatically logged out after all too short of time of inactivity. How can I lengthen that span?

ou might be confusing Sleep with Log out. If you get a password box after sleep that is normal. You are not really logged out, just protected from others users if you are away from the computer. If you don't need the protection you can cancel the password after sleep by opening Power Options, Require a password after Sleep and unchecking the password requirements to wake the computer after sleep. You have to click on Change Settings that are unavailable to change this setting. Search in Settings for Power to get to the Power Options setting quickly.
