Solve the issue where Windows 8 locks after one minute

I’ve gotten a question latley on how to solve an issue where Windows 8 locks after one minute of inactivity. This is something that is quite annoying as you might understand.

To solve this, you need to reset your security policies. (This works in 98% of the cases).
Start with opening the “User Accounts” located in the “Control Panel”.
Here you will find the option to reset the security policies, as marked in the image bellow.

If this doesn’t solve your issue, check my second post here.

      Hi!

      I’ve seen this before and it means that your issue isn’t related to a security policy.
      I’m currently working on a second guide with other things to check that might affect this.

      It should be ready tomorrow, so stay tuned!
