    i recently built a new HTPC running WIn 10 Pro...the issue i'm having is if i'm doing something on the HTPC, (like copying a bunch of data from external HDD to internal HDD), and i switch my HDMI input to my cable box to watch TV, after a few minutes when i switch back to the HTPC, i'm logged out of Windows and the process i had running (ie. copying data) has been "paused" until i log back in?!?!?

    and i even have the setting disabled that requires users to enter username and password to log into to their account...i actually don't even have a password set up to log in to windows, so when i switch back to the HTPC input, i have to hit enter to log-in without even having to enter a PW...when i reboot, the log-in screen is bypassed, and no log-in is required

    i do have a screensaver that kicks in after 45 minutes, that also does not require a PW, but the log-out i'm describing seems to happen after only 10-15 minutes....but if i keep the TV display set to the HTPC, i don't get logged out while doing these long activities (ie. copying data)

    any idea what could be causing this?

    What version of 10 Pro, 1803 or 1809, or something else? Be more specific because the version matters.

    Try with a Windows password set. Weird things happen that are related to HDCP over HDMI.
