    Windows 10 - waking up from sleep


    Hi all,

    Just joined site as got nowhere else to turn to

    As of recently a week or 2 now, when I put my computer into sleep mode it goes to sleep no problem. I have enabled it to wake up either using my keyboard or mouse which is fine, but I know have noticed a different problem.

    When the computer woke up before it would go straight to the password screen which was fine ( stops small hands getting on lol) , but now it goes to the booting screen and does a boot up then goes to the password screen.

    This wasn't a problem before and as far as I am aware I haven't touched or done anything different..

    Please , please help as this is rather annoying if i have to get back to the computer fairly fast for something or some typing.

    p.s. also how do i change my profile pic?
