Windows 10: Set time for password after computer put into sleep mode?

  1.    01 May 2016 #1

    Set time for password on awakening after computer put into sleep mode?


    When I take a break from the computer, I click on my Sleep taskbar icon. I guess in my safety paranoiac state, I set things up so that when I awaken the computer, I have to put in my master PW. This has become a PITA and I was wondering if one can set the timing such that the need for a PW will be an hour, or at any desired time after Sleep had been set?

    Hello flycaster,

    I'm not sure about for sleep, but you could set a grace period for a blank screen saver, then set sleep the computer to sleep after this grace period to have the same affect.

    Thanks Brink, a reasonable work around.
