Specs: Windows 7, 500GB
I have a new Acer laptop and when I get up and leave for a few minutes, I come back and it has shut down on me. I have to sign in again and again. It is getting very annoying. How do I change the time before it automatically shuts down? I'm tired of having to sign in all the time.

Be careful on how much longer you make it stay on for, it will shorten your usable battery life. To help offset this you may need to shut it down or put it to sleep manually when you know you will be away for a while. Note, that you can have it wake from sleep or hibernate without the need for logging on if you like, just know it will not be as secure if you are really away from it.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
