Silly laptop question.

  gengiscant 08:09 21 Aug 2009

If I leave my laptop alone for a few minutes it reverts to the log on screen,that is not really a problem, just the short time before it reverts to the log on screen,if I'm working on a desktop and need a copy of something on the laptop I find I have to log on again.
Can I lengthen this time, if so how? this is my first laptop so not familiar with its settings yet.

right click desktop - properties - screensaver tab -then amend the time for screensaver to kick in.

Go to Control Panel>Power Options and set all three options to Never.

OK - you're welcome - BTW, as long as a question is genuine, there is no such thing as a 'silly question' on this Forum.
