Windows 10 Waking up from Sleep

    Windows 10 Waking up from Sleep

    When I wake up my PC from sleep, it stops at a picture like viewing from a cave to the ocean (shows date/time upper left and some icons lower right). It stops there until I click on the screen then goes to User name logon 'sign In'; where it stops again until I click on start, then immediately opens at desktop. Does anyone know how to bypass these two user prompts so it goes from sleep to desktop without intervention. I did turn off User Required to Enter Password at Logon, which did nothing for start from Sleep??? Also, I do not have a password assigned. Nothing I've found on the Internet so far has help bypass this concern. I just want to be able to bring my PC from Sleep to Desk Top without having to click the screen twice.
    Any help is appreciated!

    Hi, try this from the excellent Tutorial section (do take time to have a look - clear answers to many issues)

    dalchina, Thank you for your response! However, I have already performed this action w/o solving the issue. The only change so far I have been able to make is the elimination of the first stoppage at the picture of ocean; this is now bypassed. My system still stops at the user Sign In screen and waits for me to click on it. I know it seems like a little effort of one click to go from sleep to sign on user then another click; but it's just the point that it should be seamless. Thanks again for your input!

    You must be signed in as an administrator to be able to turn on or off require sign-in on wakeup.
    Can you confirm you used an administrator account when you made the change?

    Mine is set to resume from sleep without a lock screen or login being required.
