    notebook still locks display


    After adding new account into Mail application (connecting it to company's Exchange 2007 - part of SBS 2008 - and agreeing to accept Exchange politics) the Win 8 lock my display after 5 minutes. Which is unacceptable.
    So I have changed SBS Mobile Mailbox Policy for 60 minutes timeout for requiring password. Probably it was done successfully as timeout on my Android mobile has changed. But Win 8 on my notebook still locks display in 5 minutes. I have tried to remove Exchange account and add it again, tried to change almost every timeouts accessible on Win 8 but still locks in 8 minutes.
    Could you help me please?
