    Automating Password sign in

    Using the "Netplwiz" in the Run box, I was able to automate the sign in password upon initially booting up my machine. When I first start up my machine, it immediately goes to my desktop without asking for the password. So far, so good.

    But when I put the computer to sleep and later wake it up, it asks for the password and won't return to the screen I left unless I put it in. Any suggestions?

My laptop is password-protected, which is fine when I leave the house with it, but a nuisance at home. I know some smartphones can be set to require no password when in range of my home wi-fi; can Win 10 do the same, and if so, how?
