Why does my GoPro Hero 5 default to locking screen? How do I turn this off?

When I turn on the GoPro, it says screen is locked and I must unlock it.  I can then use it, start a video or take a photo, and then it locks again.  It is a brutal cycle and I would like to turn that feature off unless I tell the camera to lock the screen.

mines always unlocked, sure there is a "autolock" feature in the menu, might be worth looking to see what its set at

You were correct, changed the default on the camera itself.  Thanks!
