Windows 7: Password required after Screensaver...

Password required after Screensaver...

This is really a non-important issue but I still will like to know how to use this feature. I have Windows 7 Build 7100, I have been able to set everything else with easy but I can not find a way to have or set a password when I wake up the PC from my screensaver... The "Require a Password" is ticked though.

Anybody else?

Hello AstaLaVista,

Welcome to the Forums.

Does the account have a password? To set a password for the account, Control panel/user accounts/create password for your account.

Hope this helps.

Have you made sure "On resume, display logon screen" is ticked in the screen saver panel?

Yes, I am required to use a password at the logon screen before getting to my desktop.

Uhmmm, I would have to say Yes but, to be honest with you, I can't be 100% sure at the moment (not in my house to check) but I am 95% sure that it is also ticked.

I have made a power plan setting though, could this be making havoc on my Display/sleep/screensaver settings? All I did was to put it in Performance rather than Power Save.

The PC can't go to sleep either but I guess that's an entirely new post huh!
