    Suddenly have to Sign In Every Time


    When I switched from 8.0/8.1, one of the things that thrilled me the about 10 was that I didn't have to sign back in every time the computer sent to sleep!

    Now, after the last update, I have to do this again. What a major PITA! Is there any way to disable this? I have absolutely no reason to be worried about security in my own home.

    (I also notice that I am now occasionally getting some strange screens upon starting up and before the sign-in screen. I have been ignoring them. The last one (and maybe the earlier ones, too) asked "Do you like what you are seeing?" What the heck are these??

    Hello Wadi,

    You can turn off require sign-in on wakeup to stop this.

    Terrific, Brink! I thought they would at least give us an option but had no idea how to change it. Thanks a lot!
