    will not ask for password after sleep


    I am trying to make W10 ask for my logon password after going to sleep. I went into the settings and clearly set it to ask for the logon after it has gone to sleep. I set it to sleep after 15 minutes and it does go to sleep , but shaking the mouse will wake the system without asking for the logon. Does anyone know why this happens?

    Computer doesn’t ask for password after waking from sleep

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I appreciate the efforts taken by you in resolving this issue. I understand that the computer doesn’t prompt for a PIN/Password after waking up from sleep.



    As you have already checked the Sign-in options, I would suggest you to refer the steps mentioned below and see if that helps.



    We can try changing the screen saver settings and check. Refer the steps mentioned below:



    1. Press Windows Logo key + I, to open
      Settings.
    2. Click on Personalization and select
      Lock screen from the left pane.
    3. Scroll down and click on Screen saver settings.
    4. Now, select the screen saver and enter a time.
    5. Ensure that the checkbox for On resume, display log on screen is selected.
    6. Click on Apply and OK.


    Article for reference: Change your screen saver settings.



    Let us know how it goes.



    Regards,

    Nikhar Khare
