    No application sound on lock screen after wakeup since v1809 update?


    I am using Windows10 x64 on a rather old ASUS G73jh laptop.

    Since the October 2018 (v1809) update, application sounds don't play on the lock screen after the computer wakes from sleep, UNTIL I SIGN IN.

    Specifically, only application sound doesn't play (e.g. playing music through a media player). The "Windows Alarms" app will still ring, and if I turn on "Narrator" through the ease-of access icon in the lower right, that starts speaking to me... so it definitely isn't a sound driver issue.

    The problem is that I use my computer as an alarm clock: I use Task Scheduler to run my music-player (WinAMP in this case) at a given time, with the "Wake the computer to run this task" option checked. Since v1809 was installed, WinAMP still does actually run at the specified time, but nothing can be heard until I sign in, making it useless as an alarm clock - unless I just leave the computer running and don't put it to sleep... but its noisy fan keeps me awake in that case (not to mention, it's a waste of power).

    Note that if I simply lock the computer (CTRL-ALT_DEL -> lock), without sleeping it, this doesn't happen: Sound continues playing uninterrupted on the lock screen inn that case.

    It looks to me like it might be an explicit "feature" implemented by Microsoft, rather than an accidental bug. Is anyone else experiencing this, or does anyone have information on it? And is there a workaround, or a registry setting, to revert to previous behavior (that being, application audio plays normally as soon as the computer wakes up)?

    Thanks for any help anyone can offer!

    :)

    Lock screen times out too soon

    Hi,





    To assist you, can you tell us the steps on how do you change the lock screen time of your PC?



    By the way, if you wish to
    remove the password protection of your computer, you need to change the Power options setting
    to disable the auto-locking of the screen. Let’s try the following steps and check:




    • Type
      Power from the Search box and select
      Power Options.

    • SelectRequire a
      password on wakeupfrom the left side options.

    • Under
      Password protection on wakeup, select Don't require a password.

    • Click
      Save changes.



    Regards.
