    Idle Restart - automatice login


    When my computer has been idle for awhile it goes to sleep. When I restart it (move the mouse, Escape Key) I get the picture with a clock, I have to click, then I get the login screen, and now I have to login. I'm the only user and don't use any passwords. How can I avoid these screens and just return to my session?

    Hello jkpublic,

    It sounds like you may have require sign-in on wakeup turned on. See if turning it off (if turned on) using the tutorial below may sort it for you.

    Sign-On At Wakeup


    Brink
    Thank you, it worked after an edit.
    - First I had to create a password to set the option.
    - I let it idle, sleep, sign-on and it required my password
    - Signed in, went back to settings and removed the password
    Voila, it works. Crazy, I had to create a password in order to not use one.

    Thank you,
    Ray
