Windows 7: How to turn off "Require password on wakeup"?

How to turn off "Require password on wakeup"?

When I put my computer to sleep and wake it up it always asks for my password. Since I'm the only user on this computer and it's set to autologon on startup it's of no use to have the password prompt when returning from sleep.

But how can I turn this off? The "Require password on wakeup" in Power settings is grayed out so I can't change it.

Hi laxu,

Click the start orb and type Power Options into the search box and press enter/return. Click on Require a password on wakeup. The following screen will appear.

Click on Change settings that are currently unavailable and, after providing administrative credentials, the following screen will appear.

The option you require is Don't require a password, so select that option and then click Save changes and then close the dialogue boxes.
