On my home PC I installed W8 several months ago - no problems. When I used the metro/tile interface to access my exchange mail account I was forced to accept a security policy from my employer (I assume) that logs me off my machine whenever the screen goes dark - or at least it makes me enter my password again to wake up the machine.
Since I never use that metro way of accessing my exchange account I removed the account from the metro email. That, sadly but not surprisingly, did not remove the security policy. I'd like to get back to not having to login all the time since my machine at home is quite physically secure.
Can someone give me instructions on how to reset the group policies. I assume it uses GPedit.msc, but I'm reluctant to tinker in that area without guidance since I didn't see anything that looked like a relevant option.
FYI - I've set the "require a password on wakeup" power option to NOT require a password - that didn't help.
