  2. Enable Require password on Wake up Windows 10

    Hi Maaz,

    One of the possible reasons why you cannot enable password on wake up is because of
    issues with the Power settings. To better assist you, we need the answers to the following questions:

    • Which build and version of Windows you are using?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you taken to resolve the issue?

    In the meantime, we suggest that you run the Power troubleshooter to help you find and
    repair Power setting problems. To do this, simply follow the steps below:

    • Right click the Start button and select
      Settings
      .
    • Click on Troubleshoot on the left pane.
    • Select Power and click on the Run the troubleshooter button.

    We are looking forward to your response.
