No password query under Windows despite screen saver, why?
The solution is very simple, in spite of the screen saver no password query under Windows 11, 10, ... and MS Server OS, why?
Note that you may want to set the screensaver timeout a little longer than the screen timeout. This way you can avoid having to enter your password every time you don't see anything on the screen. Only after the screen saver has started do you need to enter your password to return to your session.
If your computer is not used for a long period of time (and there are no background tasks to keep it awake), Windows Vista will automatically put your computer to sleep. By default, this timeout is set to 60 minutes and requires a password to be entered after the computer wakes up.
