    told to log in every day, everywhere


    Each night I set my PC to sleep and Next day I wake it up then whatever sight I go to I am told that I need to log in. This happens with AOL Mail, Facebook, ThinkBroadband and, of course W10 Forums. I am running Windows 10 64 bit on a Lenovo ideapad. This is not a serious problem but it is annoying.

    What web browser are you using? Do you have your web browser set up to remember your your passwords and log on information?

    I am using Microsoft Edge and, yes, it does remember my passwords and log on information.

    1) Under Settings, in middle of page, click 'Choose what to clear', uncheck box for 'Cookies and saved website data"
    2) At bottom of Edge Settings, click 'View advanced settings'. Near page bottom, choose either 'Do not block Cookies' or Block only third party cookies'.
    3) If all else fails, try the Lastpass Edge extension in the Store. Good Luck

    Thanks mrgeek. I carried out points 1 and 2 above the set my PC to sleep and woke it, all's well then I shut it sown and restarted it and opened several sites without being told to log in, so all seems to be sorted I'll wait for a few days before marking this as solved though, because I was given advice from elsewhere that sorted the problem and it returned shortly after, but, I live in hope.
