    Windows 10 lock screen not responding


    Hey everybody!

    First time here but these forums helped me more than once so I'm pretty sure it's the best place to ask!

    I've been running Windows 10 myself for a few days. My girlfriend for a few weeks/months. We noticed a small something that is not much but is getting on the nerve after a while.

    We lock our computer or put them to sleep and when trying to get from the lock screen to the login screen, nothing is happening. We wait a few moment and everything is fine. Here is a few cases just to give you an idea...

    I'm at the lock screen. Click the mouse or hit a key. Nothing. Try a few times and I get to the login screen.
    Another case : From the lock screen, hit a key on the keyboard multiple time and nothing. Click the mouse once and it's ok.

    Everything work fine after that and it's no big deal but whe having to do this game a few times each days it's start to get on the nerve. Sometimes it's fine and we get to the login screen right away.

    In my case it's a brand new install and in the case of my girlfriend it's an upgrade from 8.1.

    Anybody had this? Found something around it? We need to lock our computers multiple time a day so we can't just go around this by not locking our computers.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Yes. It was happening early on with my machine, as when it recovered from sleep, I had to wait about 10 seconds after the lock screen came up to do anything as my hard disk takes a moment to reinitialize. Once I wait, it works fine. I bought a new HDD and don't have that issue now

    Thank you for your time.
    That would explain my girlfriend problem, but not mine since it's a brand new SSD.
