    Return From Sleep

    My pc goes into sleep mode after 15 minutes, when I then press the spacebar to return to normal operation I get a random picture on screen, plus so odd overlayed messages. Then press enter and it asks for a password, press enter again and it logs in and goes back to normal - i.e. desktop (no password input necessary)

    How do I stop all this nonsense? I simply want to press spacebar and the desktop comes up.

    Turning off require sign-in on wakeup should sort this for you.
