My laptop is shutting down after a short period of time. This started about two months after installing windows 10. I checked my settings and they are what I want so resetting them probably won't help. I saw an answer to this problem that read as follows: What does "remove the tick from the box next to 'On resume, display log-on screen'." mean? I don't see a box next to 'On resume, display log-on screen' with a tick.
Open windows Control Panel, open Personalization, click the Screen Saver link in the bottom right and in the following window adjust the 'Wait' time to a more acceptable figure and remove the tick from the box next to 'On resume, display log-on screen'. Click Apply, then Ok to save this setting.

Welcome to the HP Support Forums. I am glad that you have joined in and asked for help with suggestions and solutions when it comes to your HP Notebook PC. I will do my absolute best to help you come to a resolution.
When we have come to a resolution, please share what worked for you with others by marking this post as an Accepted Solution.
If you are looking to not have a password set up after you wake the Notebook from sleep mode etc. I would suggest the following steps:
- Control Panel
- Power Options
- Pick the plan you use
- Change Plan Settings
- Change Advanced Settings.
- Open the + box at the name of the plan
- Look for "Require Password on Wakeup" in the drop down
- Change it to 'No'
- Click Apply
- Click OK
The setting that you are inquiring has to do with the Windows Registry I believe but I am not 100% sure where that particular path will take you and what it will do.
Otherwise, please use the links in the questions below to troubleshoot and then re-post with the answers to the questions/results of the troubleshooting.
