How to disable Window login in Window 7

A Window 7 workstation always lock when it leave idle for some time and require user to input the password to unlock it.

Is there any way to ensure it doesn't prompt out the password ? I have disabled screensaver, power management - Require a password on wakeup / Pasword protection on wakeup  but it doesn't help.

Under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System, "System" folder is not there.

Change the power settings to never for battery and when plug in so the system will not hybernate or sleep.

Control panel > Appearance and Personalization > Chnage screen saver > Change power settings
and switch evrything to never and save changes.

Have you considered changing the password to "" (i.e. blank)


Control Panel -> User Accounts -> Remove Password


Simply increase the time before it goes to power-saving mode, to a couple of hours.
(Show the user how to manually lock the screen if required)

Can we have a little background context please?
Is this machine on a domain or just a standalone/workgroup machine?

If it's on a domain, then the answer is different and you ought to be talking to the security team as maybe they have made this change on purpose. If not and *you* are the admin/security then fine follow the advice above.

If the key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System, "System"
as already described.


is not there, then just create it. Then create the value
what about my questions?
