    log in ignoring pin/password


    Hi, I have a minor log in problem after coming out of a sleep, I normally use a pin to log in but recently when I enter a pin it will say I have miss input the keys then after a few attempts it will give me the option to input a password this then does the same, If I then turn my surface pro off (this normally takes 2 or 3 attempts as it pushes me back to a log in screen) when I restart it logs in no problem. This only started yesterday and seems to be when it has been asleep for a few hours, I don't have things like hibernate or hybrid sleep active.

    any suggestions welcome.

    Hi Raz! If this started yesterday, what changes have you made. Have you tried to restore to a earlier time??

    Cheers for the reply no changes made it just started out of the blue, as for restoring may give that a go if all else fails.
