Windows 10: Windows 10 stopped asking for password from sleep
Windows 10 stopped asking for password from sleep
Hi. For some reason, my Windows 10 on my desktop pc has stopped asking me for my password when waking it from sleep. It was working fine until recently. I'm not sure if an automatic update has caused the issue or not, but, I really want to protect my computer from just anyone accessing it.
I have searched and searched the web for answers and have followed all of the instructions found but nothing seems to work.
I noticed that I have 3 accounts: (1) Administrator; (2) ASPNET Machine Account; (3) guest and other users. Don't know if this has anything to do with the problem or not but thought that I would mention it.
All 3 of these accounts have the box checked to require a password but still doesn't work.
Can anyone tell me how I can get back to requiring the password to access my pc??
Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
Hello and welcome to tenForums
There is a setting that controls this behaviour. Look through this tutorial: Require Sign-in on Wakeup - Turn On or Off in Windows 10
Thanks but have already tried all of the options in this tutorial.
Something must have got corrupted on your system. There are various options for repairing:
1. SFC /scannow command
2. DISM Command
3. System restore to an earlier point in time when it was working
4. Try an in-place upgrade repair
Whenever I put my computer to sleep and try to wake it up again, I can click the screen or press a button on my keyboard to access the login screen, but there will not be a password box that shows up. I try to type in my password, but there is no...
Win 10 Upgrade done a year ago. Everything worked fine. No hardware or software changes in last six months, other than auto Win 10 updates. System always went to sleep automatically per Power Option settings.
Then three days ago, Auto sleep...
I recently enabled the lock screen slideshow in Windows 10.
Every time my display turns off (after 2 minutes of inactivity), it goes back to the lock screen and I have to login again.
This issue is fixed by going to Settings-->Accounts-->Sign-in...
Last night my password into my windows 10 (upgrade from 8.1 so I have no disk). I'm the only account other than the ones created by the system.
It keeps telling me my password I'm entering is wrong. It's been the same password...
I changed my username on Windows 10, and after a while I logged out. Then when I try to log back, it asks for password, but my old password doesnt work. I also tried putting blank password (not writing anything) but that doesn't work either.
