Long time reader, first time poster. :)

I recently acquired a new laptop, my first one that supports modern standby (S0 low power idle). It appears there are a number of subtle differences compared to the S3 sleep state I've become accustomed to.

In the Windows 10 Sign-in Options, under "Require sign-in" section, there is usually an option "When PC wakes from sleep", which will require a password when the machine wakes from sleep or hibernation. On this new laptop, that option is absent. It has the usual options of Never, Always, and 1 minute, 3 minutes ... up to 15 minutes. But the one to only require when waking from sleep is not there.

Is it possible that because modern standby never truly puts the machine to sleep, there is no way to require a password when returning from that state, and therefore it is not present?

The only other explanation I can come up with is that my company removed that option via a domain policy. But given they used to set that option by default, it seems unlikely (and, sadly, hard to track down).
