    No Sign-in Window After Sleep Mode

    Since the Microsoft update on 14th Jan, when my PC comes out of sleep mode the sign-in window doesn't appear unless I press ctrl+alt+del first. In Google there are a lot of questions about this same problem going as far back 2015, has anyone found a solution that actually works and doesn't involve having to re-install everything. My sleep mode has been working fine for a year now so I'm not sure what's suddenly been changed.

    One suggestion is to go into the power options control panel and switch off all the power save options like sleep mode, but that then means leaving the PC on 24/7.

    Then roll back before that update with System Restore. I never leave a computer running 24/7, unless it is a NAS or server. No need for a Workstation to run when not using.

    See if turning off Hibernation solves the problem:
    Right-click Start and select: Command Prompt (Admin)

    At the Command Prompt type:

    powercfg /h off
    Type Exit, and restart the computer.

    Note: On a laptop, when the battery runs out you might lose your opened work, so keep that in mind whe tturning this feature off..
