By default, (for security reasons and power conservation), The netbook goes to screen saver after 10 minutes and requires a password to get back in. After 20 minutes, it will power down. To change the settings, just follow these instructions (again, pictures will follow for all you visual learners when I feel like it!)
Right click desktop, and choose Properties
Click on the Screen Saver tab
UNCHECK On Resume password protect to avoid re-logging in. You can also extend the length of time before the netbook goes to screen saver.
To change the length of time before the netbook powers itself off, press the Power button in the bottom right.
That's it! Good luck!
