Windows 7 workstations keep locking after inactivity

Last Modified: 2014-05-06
I have two brand new windows 7 PCs being used for Point of Sale. They keep locking after short periods of inactivity. I have changed everything I know to change.

In the power options: The PCs are set to never go to sleep, the displays are set to never turn off, require a password on wakeup is set to Don't require a password, and hibernation is disabled.

The screensaver is set to None and the On resume, display logon screen is unchecked.

I'm stumped.
