Hey all!

 

For the life of me, I cant work out where the setting is (if there is one). Ever since connecting machines to Azure AD, they are locking themselves (forcing a password login) after a short period of time.

 

I have tried InTune > Dev config >chosen group > Properties > Settings > Password - and changed the Minutes of Inactivity setting to 1hr. This has seemed to delay it (probably to 1 hr - haven't timed it) but I really need to be able to set these machines to stay on/logged in constantly.

 

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

 

(Local PC settings are set to 'never' etc).

 

Cheers,

Corey

I'm not sure the purpose for not wanting the auto lock-feature for the computers, but if you enable presentation mode (manually) on the device it should not lock automatically. 

 

You could also look into Kiosk-mode for the device:
