    Which of the options does NOT require having a password as I do NOT have one.

    Many thanks.

    Option 2 is not available any more.
    Option 3 does not work (any more?) before restarting the machine, which makes it useless.
    Same for option 5.
    The only option working (without restarting the machine) is option 1, but this cannot be simply called in a script. I now made a workaround with an AutoIt script to call the settings window and send the keys automatically required to change the value, but it is not really smart.

    If someone knows a method to turn on or off sign-in on wakeup without the need to restart the machine, please let me know.

    Hello Blueliner, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    It's still available, but you will need to do what is noted in the blue note box in Option 2 first to have the setting available.

    Yes, these options still work if followed step by step.

    Option 3 would be good for this.

    I have tried option 3 and it worked - but only after restarting the machine. If password is required and I change it via option 3, password is still required after wakeups until I restart the machine. And vice versa.

    Option 3 changes the setting in Settings for me without having to restart, but you should be able to use Option 4 (Group Policy) to apply this without having to restart.

    Thanks for your reply! You are right, option 3 changes the value in the settings immmediately. Still, it does not take effect before restarting the machine.
    Option 4 is also not good, because I want to change the value for my user only - option 4 changes the value for all users.

    Actually, the other options get applied to your active power plan, and affects all users that use the same power plan.
