    I don't know what that has to do with requiring a password to log back in from the lock screen, but I ticked it anyway and I was still required me to enter my password.

    You would have wanted to uncheck that box. It's for requiring to have to enter a password when resuming from a screen saver.

    It is unchecked.

    I checked it just for a test.

    I then unchecked it.

    I must admit that I'm not sure why it's still requiring users to sign in when you have everything posted set to not do so.

    Now that I think about it, the same thing occurred in Windows 8.

    I was able to automatically log in to the computer but needed my password from the Lock Screen.

    Oh well.
    I can live with it.

    Thanks much for the help,
