Windows 10: Lock screen only appears every other time

    Lock screen only appears every other time

    Anyone else seeing this issue? If I put my tablet into standby when I wake it I don't get the lock screen and it just goes straight to the start screen or whatever app I was using. If I put it into standby again then I'll get the lock screen the next time I wake it but then the next time it won't appear again. I've checked and it's literally every other time.

    No-one else? I tried doing a refresh and setting up a PIN and it's still doing the same thing here. Not good for device security.

    I don't have a tablet so I don't know specifically about that device but does it have something similar to Ctrl+Alt+Del and then a "Lock this Computer" choice?

    I guess to make sure you'll need to use the "Lock this computer" or whatever duplicates that function on the tablet every time when you leave it.

    Yes, I can manually lock it if I needed to. I don't actually have any important data on the tablet so luckily it's not an urgent issue for me. It's just something I noticed and thought I'd better check that it wasn't just localised to my tablet as if it was a potential security issue that others could replicate then they could report it so it can be fixed before RTM.

    Still seeing the same issue in 10166. Can anyone with a tablet confirm whether they see the same issue?
