I think it says "lock screen" or maybe "locked screen". To get
past that, I press escape. Then it says "secure desktop".
That's a dialog where I think I can change the name and stuff.
It lands on "logon" and I press the spacebar. It then says
"welcome" and then it trips over itself finally landing on
"alexa". I then have to alt-tab around to get back to the
program window I was using. That's it in a nutshell; pretty big
nut. I've been through all the settings in power management and
all set to never. So this must be something else. I'm getting
tempted to look at the registry.

this is what I explained in my message. I have all those

Does anyone else have a problem with this? One of my
win10 computers goes into a sort of sleep mode if I stop
fiddling with it for more than three minutes or so. I
assume that it has nothing to do with the power options
because I have them all set to never. I got microsoft on
the phone a couple months ago; and she thought she fixed
it. But that just isn't the case. It still does it and
it's rather annoying. Has anybody got a fix? Thanks.
