Windows 7 Login Screen

Hi All,

I have a friend who has bought a new Dell laptop with Windows 7. He says that every few minutes the login screen pops up and asks him to login again (either through password or face recognition). This happens even as he is working on it so it is not the password protected screensaver. Is this a new feature of Windows 7, that the user login page challenges the user after a regular time interval has elapsed? If so, how does it get turned off?
