Disable login after Sleep in Windows 10/8/7

We have already seen how to log in directly into Windows without entering password. Today in this article, I’m going to share you the option that is sometimes pretty helpful. Actually whenever we gets to sleep mode in Windows 7/8/10, and when we ‘come back to wake up the computer’, its asks us for the password.

Log into Windows automatically after exiting Sleep

While this is a good security measure, some of you may not want to be asked for a password, every time your computer exits the Sleep Mode. Let us see how to make Windows stop asking you for the password on each wake up by configuring the options. To do that, follow these simple steps.

1. Click on the battery icon in the notifications section of taskbar. Choose More power options. In the Power Options window, click on Require a password on wakeup.

2. Click on Change that settings that are currently available.

3. Moving on, see the Password protection on wakeup section. Choose the option Don’t require a password.

Finally click on Save changes and its done. This will disable login after Sleep in Windows 7 & Windows 8. Now-onwards whenever your system get back to wake up, it won’t ask you to enter the credentials and will start from that stage where you leaved it.

NOTE : Please notice that modifying the above option will not make any effects on as usual log in. It will configure the option only for after sleep or at wake up condition. In that case, it’s not same thing as this article indicates:

Hope you enjoyed the tip!
