Lock password protected sections after user hasn't worked on them for a time

OneNote supports password protecting sections and they are unlocked once a user types the password and can be locked again by either a timeout period or when you navigate away from the section. This option will lock the section after the user hasn't used the section for the selected amount of time.

Supported on: At least Windows 7
