for a couple of days now, It seems every time when my laptop goes to sleep (manually or automatic), I'm no longer able to login to my pc as it always returns to the lock screen. I can do this 5 times in a row and nothing changes. even if I use pin or password to login again.
I've removed all of the software I installed lately but I haven't made any recovery points so I'm able to go back in time before I had this issue.
The only way I can resolve this is by completely shutting down the pc (restart does not help either)

Any help would be appreciated.
I'm intending to reimage my pc if there is no other way around this

many thanks for your help
kind regards
