    Am I confused? I think that link is to require a password. I don't want to use a pw on my Surface as I don't need the security.

    That link is to require to sign in after display is off. It'll be worth check to see if your Surface Pro 3 has such a setting. If it does, then that could be why you are still having to sign in after wakeup.

    Yes it has the settings, which I have set to never require a password for all the above. But it still does so maybe it's one of the bugs which will be fixed with an update. I hope so. Thanks for your advice.

    Hello Erick, and welcome to Ten Forums. *Smile

    Did you want this for at startup instead of at wakeup from sleep?

    Finally I got rid of password and lock-screen on my Surface Pro3. (Though it still requires password after restart)

    I applied the registry script at the bottom of the page in this link:

    https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/6...dows-10-a.html

    It is reversible as well.

    There is a bug in require password on wakeup. Although it may sound ridiculous, yes means no, and no means yes. Tried changing the option to yes and it worked for me on my surface 3. Try it. I swear it works
    This has to be done under advanced power settings.

  15. I changed it to yes. The first two time I woke it I wasn't asked for a password, the third time I was. Its inconsistent just as before. Needs a fix from Microsoft.
