OSX/Parallels/WIN 8.1 Wanted: No screen saver / No password / No sleep

What User settings are required to prevent Mac OSX/Parallels/WIN 8.1 from ever (and I mean *never*) going to sleep and requiring password to wake. I have turned off screen saver, but after long delay (hours?) VM/PC requires password.

Why do I want this? After entering password, windows programs do not function as expected, if at all.

Looked here: Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\User Accounts

Hi.

First let's see if screen locking is really the problem. Lock the screen on purpose using winkey and L - do the programs continue to run after unlocking? It would be a surprise if not, because locking should never do any harm at all.

Found helpful very recent article in 'Windows Secrets' I subscribe to: 'Solving erratic Win8 system sign-ins' Issue was with multiple logins & Microsoft Account - which I did not want. Ultimate goal is to move to OSX; need to find program like MS Publisher; OSX Pages does not render images from copied (click & drag) web pages as Publisher does. There does not seem to OSX version of Publisher. Do you know of such?
