    How Not to Enter Password Wakeup

    Some might say, Windows 10 home can be frustrating. Ok!, When my desktop goes to sleep, I have to enter my password on wakeup. I've searched all over the internet...and that includes and printed out some thirty pages on how it can be done, but, no luck.
    I have printed how to Make Windows 10 not require a Password on Wake. I went to Power Options in Control Panel, click the "Require a password on wakeup" on the left-hand side. Clicked on... "Change settings that are currently unavailable" link, then click the "Don't require a password " button, and made I saved it.
    After the computer goes to sleep and I need to wake it up, it asks for my password. I've tried this at least dozen times in many different way according to some that post how to do it.

    Anyone have a better way?

    You could try by going to "Settings" , "Accounts, "Sign-In Options", Require Sign-In and set that to Never.

    If that still does not work and you normally sign-in using a MS account then try using a local account instead, make the changes that failed before and give that a try.
    IMHO it's a credentials setting that may have to do with how Outlook is set up.
