    Something causes to deactivate "require sign in screen" setting


    Hello, I have this weird problem:

    I wanted to protect my desktop with PIN code when I'm inactive. For example, I'm doing something in my PC and then I left it, screen went off and if someone else touches it and wakes up the monitor, I want it to be locked with my PIN code. So, I did this: Went it settings, system, power & sleep and made this change: "Screen - when plugged in, turn off after 3 minutes". Then I went in settings again, accounts, sign-in options & there I enabled this "Require sign-in - if you've been been away, when should Windows require you to sign in again?" and I checked this one - "When PC wakes up from sleep". Then, again I went back to general settings, then personalization, lock screen, screen saver settings, and there I chose this "Screen saver: None, wait 3 minutes, & checked 'on resume, display logon screen' ".


    Everything started working like I wanted - after 3 minutes screen goes off and when I shake my mouse or type anything on my keyboard to wake it up, it requires PIN code. Perfect! However, one strange problem started occurring: I noticed that, in the evening it's not working anymore. I mean, screen goes off, but when I shake my mouse, I don't get sign in display anymore, it just wakes up screen without lock screen page, basically sign in screen disappears and anyone can use my PC without PIN code. Question is - what triggers to disable sign in screen in the evening? The only thing that automatically does something in the evening in my PC is this: I have "Automatic Rules" enabled in "Focus Assist" in settings. From 7PM to 11AM, priority only enables itself. I need it that way. So maybe it is causing this bug that disables sign in screen display? However, when I turn on my PC in the morning, when priority only is still active, this bug doesn't happen - screen goes off after 3 minutes and when I shake my mouse and wake it up, I get sign in screen and PIN code is required.


    Any thoughts about this?

    :)

    Ways to bypass the login theme and signin do not work

    Tried setting netplwiz in option 1 step 4 which shows no check in users must enter ..... no bypass of login

    Tried step 4 in option 5 below to disable require sign-on on wakeup via policy via registry but still no change on wakeup still getting the screen picture that requires hitting Esc to move to the sign in window which shows a silhouette image, my user name and a sign in button in order to access my desktop screen. Guess I will have to live with the extra steps.

    Again thanks for your interest and suggestions.

  3. password sign in

    Hi,

    About your concern with typing the password after being idle, it is actually recommended to activate for security reasons.

    If you wish to disable it, I suggest you to follow the below steps and check if it helps.

    • Go to Settings.
    • Click on Accounts.
    • Click on Sign in options.
    • On the right side, you will see required sign in.
    • Change it to Never.

    Let us know how it goes.

    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)
