When system TIMEOUT occurs, AOL loses password

When leaving the computer for a time, Windows times out..
Upon return, AOL demands its' Password - Even though the password has been saved.

My Desktop AOL normally comes up without needing the PW. The 'saved password' was always copied to each new release of the Beta, but once that timeout occurs, the PW is required.

        P.S. Update to previous comments.
        1 - After Windows timeout, AOL requests the password before allowing continuation.
        2 - If I cancel, then restart AOL - AOL *MAY* restart with its saved password (does not
        demand password be reentered) .. I use "may" as the first time I tried that, it didn't
        work. I just *DID* work today..
