How To Disable Auto-Lock In Windows 10
Windows 10 comes packed with tons of features that make your work much easier. You have a lot of ways to personalize your experience. There are several ways in which you can personalize your experience and control the way your computer behaves. You have several ways to protect your data and prevent others from accessing it.
One of the ways you can do this is by using auto lock which can be a hindrance at times. You have the options of disabling it completely or you can alter the way that it works. Auto lock protects your data and personal files from unauthorized access.
You can lock your system manually by using Windows+L or depending on the timer that you have set, your computer will lock automatically and the only way you will be able to unlock your system is by using a password or pin.
In addition to protecting your data and personal files from unwanted eyes, locking your system is a good way to conserve energy as it stops your laptop from drawing power from the battery.
You can also set Windows to show upcoming calendar events, weather reports, unread emails and other useful information on your screen. The steps you need to follow in order to customize your lock screen is as follows:
Step 1: Right-click anywhere on your desktop and click on Personalize. You can also access it from settings by pressing the Windows key + I shortcut and clicking on Personalize.
Step 2: In the left sidebar, click on Screen Time settings under Lock Screen.
Step 3: The two options you find here are Sleep and Screen. Choose Never in both under 'On battery power, turn off after' and 'When plugged in, turn off after.'
Step 4: Your computer will not turn off the screen and auto lock or go to sleep.
Instead of turning auto-lock off completely, we can also set it to a number that you are comfortable with. You can also set different behavioral patterns for auto-lock depending on whether it’s plugged in or on battery power.
Registry and group policy hack

Moving on to the Group Policy trick, search for gpedit.msc in the Start menu and open it. Navigate to the following folder, Administrative Templates > Control Panel > Personalization. Double click on the file 'Do not display the lock screen' in order to open it.
From the window that pops up, select Enabled and then click on Apply to save the changes.
