    I searched on google and in this site and couldn't find a similar thread so I hope I'm not repeating. I sometimes leave my computer on overnight if I'm downloading some files, usually by FTP. However, when I get up in the morning, windows is at a screen asking for my password, I don't know if this actually counts as logging off because I'm the admin and the only user. But anyway, it stops all transfers. I was hoping there was a way to prevent this. It seems to last about an hour before it goes out but that's just a guess.

    so, once you type your password, are you programs still open?

    I'm not sure if this is what you are looking for, but......

    Go to Control Panel > Power Options, click on the require a password on wakeup and choose the Don't require a password
