    Using enter key to wake computer

    I've been having an issue with my laptop since I upgraded to Windows 10. Anytime that I lock my computer, I am unable to get to the unlock screen just by using the enter key. I used to be able to do this in Windows 8.1. Does anyone know if there's a way to enable this?

    Every so often, it will work on mine, but for the most part, it won't.
