For example, if you leave your computer unattended for a few minutes, it’s advisable that it automatically locks. This prevents anyone from accessing your computer without entering the correct password or passcode.

However, there may be times when you need to turn off auto lock temporarily or permanently. This could be useful if you’re working on something that requires prolonged focus and need to keep the computer unlocked for an extended period of time.

You can also control when your computer sleeps by going to Settings > System > Power & Sleep > Sleep and select “Never” under the “Sleep settings” section.

On Mac computers, disabling auto lock is also very simple. Go to System Preferences > Security & Privacy > General and select “Never” under the “Require password ater sleep or screen saver begins” section then click Save Changes.

It’s important to note that turning off auto lock can have some potential security risks associated with it, especially if you’re using your computer in a public place or leaving it unattended for extended periods of time.
