Many times it happens with all of us, that we want to close the laptop, but not by shutting down it – so we use the Sleep option. Using this way, you can wake up your system instantly, rather than rebooting it, which takes extra time. For security concerns, Windows by default asks you to enter the user account password each time when you wake up your system. We have already seen how to disable login after Sleep in Windows 10.
In Windows 10/8.1, you can also disable requiring a password on wake up from the Settings screen and log in automatically. In Windows 10, you can do it via Settings > Accounts > Sign-in options.
Just for your information, if you’re using a Microsoft account on Windows 10, and in case your PC is not connected to the Internet, then Windows you can log in using the last used password. You can make Windows 10 auto-logon at wake up using two ways mentioned below:
