    Logon screen (from setting in screensaver) not working after game

    Running Win10 Pro 64-bit, latest updates applied.

    I know PC games disable the screensaver while playing and enable it when quitting but I'm playing one game (the ONLY game that does this) and whenever I quit the game, it enables the screensaver but not enable the 'On resume, display the logon screen' selection. De-selecting and re-selecting the option in the screensaver box does not re-enable the logon selection.

    Does anyone know of a script or .bat file that I could run manually to reset the security logon selection?

    Fixed this issue by using GPEDIT and enabling the 'Password protect the screen saver' setting. This setting was 'not configured' prior to editing.
