    Windows 8 signing out randomly


    Hi. Yes, you read the title. My laptop signs out randomly. When I mean sign out, the user account I'm currently using, signs out. Any ideas guys? I tried running sfc /scannow for like, 20 times already, and all it has managed to do was fix my corrupted Windows Update repository. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hello djdelarosa,

    Is your laptop sitting idle for X amount of time before having to sign in?

    Here are some items below to check to make sure that you do not have password protection turned on to no longer require needing to enter a password when resuming from sleep/hibernation/screensaver.

    Hello Brink Thanks for the help.

    But my issue is like this, whenever the system load is really high, the system just randomly signs out. Even when I'm using it ( typing a document ). It even signs out just after I sign into the account! Weird eh :/

    Odd. If this has just recently started, you could try doing a system restore using a restore point dated before this started.

    It has happened ever since I upgraded to Windows 8

    Have you updated to 8.1 and installed all Windows Updates?
