    Desktop Won't Lock

    Under Settings/Sign-in options, I've set the "Require sign-in" option to "When PC wakes up from sleep".
    Under Settings/Power & sleep, I've set the "Sleep" option to 30 minutes.
    After 30 minutes, it seems to go to sleep as expected, but when I use mouse movement to wake it, the pre-sleep screen hasn't changed. For security purposes, I'm trying to get things to lock up when I've been away for from the machine for a while.
    Have I missed something?
