Avoid password request after Sleep Mode in Windows 8.1
As a security check, you may set up your Windows 8.1-based PC to only come alive after you or any other user has typed in the password. This prevents unauthorized access to your PC and its saved data. However, if you are not sharing your PC with anyone and have purposefully enabled the Sleep Mode on it, you may find it annoying to furnish the password every time you wanted to recall the PC from its Sleep Mode. At times such as these, you may want to avoid the password request completely. Well, on your Windows 8.1 PC it is possible that by applying just a few tweaks you can easily initiate this process. If you have never tried it out, here is your chance to learn the steps.
The easy step solution to the above issue is as:
- Move the cursor to the bottom left corner of the Start screen, and then right click there.
- Click ‘Control Panel’ on the menu that appears.
- In the ‘Control Panel’ window, click ‘System and Security’ and then click ‘Power Options’.
- Click on ‘Require a password on wakeup’ option in the left pane and then click ‘Change settings that are currently unavailable’ in the ‘System Settings’ window.
- Under ‘Password protection on wakeup’ section, select ‘Don’t require a password’, and then click ‘Save Changes’.
- Close the ‘Power Options’ window.
- Now whenever your computer wakes up from sleep mode, you won’t need to type the password to log in. Just press any key on the keyboard to recover from sleep mode.
Wasn’t that simple? Now, every time you will want to wake your PC from its sleep mode, all you will have to do is wiggle the mouse or press a key on the keyboard and your PC will be up and going.
