Hi, I am still coming to grips with Windows 7. If I don't use the computer for 10 minutes or so, I have to re-enter the password to restart it. It disconnects from the wireless internet connection each time and I have to reconnect. Is there a way to stop this ? I don't mind entering the password when I first start up in the morning, but not every time I leave it for a short time.
Thanks in advance,
Mickmac

Do you have a screensaver running that requires a password?

This generally happens when you enable screensaver and also enable the option "ask password on resume" or something like that. To stop it just disable this option.
