Windows 10: no auto logon or sleep setting.

  1.    08 Sep 2015 #1

    no auto logon or sleep setting.

    running new HP 23 all-in-one win 8.1. took 6 tries to upgrade to win 10. always locked up on preparing for installation. after running w10 I set to logon auto without password and set sleep to 20 min. then restarted, it asked for password and it was incorrect. hit ok and two logon images appeared lower left of screen. got one to work so somewhere during setup I have two passwords. then it went to sleep after 1min, then it wanted password to wake up. so much worse than it was and I can't change back or to anything else . have spent many hours searching. no help.

    Hello lobobs. and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    Double check using the tutorial below to see if you have Windows set to automatically sign in to an account at startup. If so, check the box in netplwiz to see if that helps.

    Sign in User Account Automatically at Windows 10 Startup

    The tutorial below can help show you how to turn off requiring a password on wakeup.

    If you haven't already, be sure to start completely over in netplwiz to enter your password again. If It was entered incorrectly by mistake, it can cause what you are experiencing.

    I just did two times. same o same o. I really don't want to refresh the computer again and wait for the w10 upgrade again. as I said new computer and I have not transferred from other machine yet. would like to get w10 working. w8.1 was not worth blowing up.

    You could try a repair install instead without losing anything.
