    Win10 Pro PC Not Asking for Password on Wake


    Hello,

    I recently had to copy a bunch of files from ole external drive to a new external drive. I knew it would take several hours (if not more) so I changed my settings to sleep after 5 hours so there were no interruptions.

    Upon changing the settings back to 25 minutes, it still does not ask for a password on wake. It does show in sign in settings that authentication is require when PC wakes from sleep (this is in red text and the option When PC Wakes from Sleep is greyed out.)

    I also went in to Local Group Policy Editor - Admin Templates - System - Power Management - Sleep Settings - and changed Require a password when a computer wakes from Not Configured to Enabled.

    Nothing is working and I don't know what else to try. Help is appreciated. Thank you.

    A couple of ideas here where what may be a similar message is shown:

    Does not seem a common problem.

    A screenshot may be of interest thus:

    Do you see
    Some settings are managed by your organization” anywhere relevant?

    If you don't understand, look ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ up there when creating a post- can you see my screenshot shows you which to click to post a screenshot?

    If you don't follow that, there's a tutorial- search for screenshot in the Tutorial section.

    I very often use that image so as to save me a lot of typing. Some people put images in pdf's, docx files and all manner of other ways that are less convenient.

    Gotcha dalchina. I did as suggested from the link you left. Still does not ask for password on wake. So far nothing has worked.
