    Lock Screen Preview and Lock Screen nuisance

    Can anyone tell me how to eliminate the lock screen preview and bypass the 'Sign In' button on the lock screen?

    I often put my computer to sleep then to bring it back (in Windows 7) I would simply hit the space bar and turn on my mouse and it would go straight to my desktop. Now, I hit the space bar turn on my mouse, and it takes me to the lock screen preview then I hit the space bar and it takes me to a lock screen where I have to click 'Sign In' even though I have no password set.

    I'm guessing I'll no longer be able to hit the spacebar, turn on my mouse and go directly to the desktop but if I can hit the spacebar, turn on the mouse, then hit the space bar one last time, that would be satisfactory.

    Turns out, the instructions I found to not require a password at the sign in screen did the trick for me.
