    Stand By


    At the present my computer goes into standby automatically.

    How do I change it so it doesn't go into standby so I don't have to enter my password every time?

    I have tried everything!

    Hello Tully,

    In addition, it'll be the same as it was in Windows 8 below.

    My Control Panel in W10 does not have a "Power Option".

    Hi

    You should be able to get to Power Options by right clicking on the Start Button.
    It's in the right click drop down list.

    I did that, found the relevant tick boxes, made choice to "DO NOT REQUIRE PASSWORD on awake" clicked "SAVE", shut down, restarted, no change!

    Tully, Hello welcome to the forums. Restart is a different thing from wake from sleep? If you want auto restart there is a tutorial for that on this forums. Good luck Charlie

    If you don't want it to auto sleep, set "Put the computer to sleep:" to never in the Plan settings.
