Search for screen saver and turn off the "On resume, display login screen"
Then click "Change Power settings".
Set the laptop to:
-never sleep - when plugged in
-power button - Shut down
-when closing cover - do nothing
Make sure when its plugged in that you have it in a location where circulation can occur.
There's all kinds of bells and whistles in the Sign-in options. Pick what's easiest for you.

Subject: [dba-Tech] Windows sign in
When I close my laptop, I must sign in again when I reopen it, which is driving me nuts. I have dogs, and if I leave the top open, they will fiddle with it, so I close it. I might do this 20 times in a single day!
So, I'm thinking I might do away with sign in when the laptop is reopened if there's a setting for it. I don't want to do away with sign in when I boot, just when I reopen the running laptop.
There's no one in my home who's going to sign in and get anything confidential. I have no proprietary information stored either if they did.
The worse that would happen is someone might steal the computer and go shopping, but I usually don't save my credit card information at shopping sites. I go back in and remove them if not given the option at purchase time.
I bank online and they could easily get into my banking account, which is a concern.
My laptop is always with me, so if it were stolen, I would probably know about it quickly. It's the first thing I check each morning because I can see what time it.
The only time I turn it off is when I'm traveling with it, which is most weekends. I go back and forth between my house and my daughter's house to help care for my great grandbaby a couple of days a week.
It just seems that the opportunity for being stolen is limited.
Sorry for the ramble - not much annoys me, but this is beginning to.
