    Windows 10 does not require a password option, when waking up from sleep.

    Hi Yashwanth Kotakuri,

    Thanks for your quick reply. Problems is I have already performed the steps you outline 3 times, (including re-boot), without resolve.

    Thus I write here in hopes to find out why.

    History, this machine was an updrade to Win 10 from Win 7. In Win 7 the settings were to require a password on waking from sleep.

    I performed the steps you have outlined thinking it would overwrite the Win 7 settings however it did not.

    In an email received from Microsoft Community on Sun 24/04/16 02:31 stating the same information received from Kotakuri above.

    Hello

    Again I try the steps suggested without success:

    * Press Windows key, type
    Power Options and select same from the list.

    • This step does nothing more than bringing up the start menu.
    • So I chose Start\Settings then type
      Power Options and select same from the list.
    • See Attachment: Power Options - 001.png

    * Click Require a password on wakeup
    on left side panel,

    • This step brings up the window: Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Power Options\System Settings.
    • See Attachment: Power Options - 002.png

    * Click Change settings that are currently unavailable,
    and under password protection on wakeup, select radio button
    Require a password (recommended)

    • This step allows for adjustment and as we see the radio button
      Require a password has already been selected, then
      Click Change settings that are currently unavailable,
      and under password protection on wakeup, select radio button
      Don’t require a password and save settings.
    • See Attachment: Power Options - 003.png
    • Click Change settings that are currently unavailable,
      and under password protection on wakeup, select radio button
      Require a passwordand save settings.
    • See Attachment: Power Options - 004.png

    * Click Apply and
    OK.

    • I wait for the computer to go to sleep and wait to hear the fan settle down then move the mouse and the machine wakes up without requiring a password.
    • So I go further: Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Power Options\Edit Plan Settings and adjust the Put The Computer To Sleep: to 3 minutes and Save Changes.
    • See Attachment: Power Options - 005.png
    • I walk away, make a coffee and come back and check the computer in 6 minutes and still the computer wakes up without requiring a password.

    I could not find the answer to my problem in your forum and the links in the email below do not take me to the original
    thread allowing me to answer in the
    thread.

    Thus I answer by this email in hopes to find a resolve.

    PS: I am not new to computers, windows or mac and I am a qualifies mechanical engineer of 30 years if It helps.

    Best Regards
