    Login window won't appear after sleep

    Hey guys!
    I think this may have happened after the last update, but now whenever my laptop wakes up from sleep I'm stuck.

    it wakes up to the splash screen and it lets me use all the buttons, it does show (WiFi, power menu, accessability options) but it won't show me the logon field. I tried opening task manager, windows+R, but nothing works.

    I've tried disabling the need for a password in the hopes it'll just let me skip past the whole screen, but it won't!

    Please help!

    Thank you in advance,


    EDIT: I took a video of the issue: Surface windows 10 sleep no login - YouTube
    sorry for the length.

    I have the same problem, can't find a solution anywhere. BUT... after the boot screen comes up, and the password field does not appear after pressing a key, I go to the bottom right and click on RESTART (not Sleep or Shut Down), it restarts and voilá, I get a password field to login. It is still annoying since it is a two step process to get into windows, but at least I'm able to work, hopefully MS finds a way to fix this soon.
