    Have you disabled UAC, or set UAC settings to "Never notify" instead of the default setting by chance?

    As a matter of fact, yes. While looking for that setting I first ended up back at 'Settings►Accounts►Sign-in options►Require sign-in" and found the last time I set it to 'Never' hadn't stuck. It was at "When PC wakes up from sleep" again.

    Set it to 'Never' again, and when I found my UAC settings I changed it back to default and rebooted. After reboot I was able to sleep, and come out of sleep without the password prompt. So I set 'Sign-in options' back to 'Never', UAC to 'Never notify' and rebooted.

    The password issue was solved, but then I found the power plan I'd made earlier and set to turn the screen off in 1 second and sleep in 3 seconds doesn't put the system to sleep anymore. So I deleted it and created a new one with the same settings. It won't go to sleep either.

    This happened all the time back in Windows XP days with power settings. But up to now I thought W10 had put those old problems to rest.

    Any ideas what may be going on here? These power problems only popped up after the update to 1607

    Does it work again if you go back to the power plan it worked in before making this last change?

    I found the cuprit Brink. It was a wallpaper app that I had set to cycle every 30 seconds. Shutting that down, W10 sleep works brilliantly. Apologies for thinking I was having the issue I had with XP, which was a brilliant OS overall in its day. Thanks for you input on this :)
