    Certain Power Settings Require Lock Screen, however, Balanced does not


    Greetings,

    When I have the computer in "balanced" mode the lock screen does not come up after Hibernate or Sleep, however, all other power settings force the lock screen after Hibernate of Sleep. So when the computer is set to "Power Saver", the lock screen will appear after Hibernate; however, it doesn't appear when in "Balanced".

    Anyone seen this before?

    Thanks!

    :)

    Windows 10 Lock Screen - OFF for Balanced power mode, but ON for Power Saver and High Performance?

    Greetings,

    Windows 10 locks the screen and requires a password when put in Sleep or Hibernate, however, it does not require a password when in "Balanced". How do I remove the password requirement when the computer is in High Performance of Power Saver modes?

    Thanks!

    Gunnar

  3. Win 10 not intermittently going to sleep

    Why does Win 10 NOT go to sleep after no use

    Power Setting currently : Go to sleep after 30 minutes of no use, Require password on wakeup

    If I click sleep mode, it works. However, computer does not go to sleep if left unused for hours and does not activate lock screen or require password
