Legacy Code

 

Have you tried disabling the password on your account Dan ?

Click the start orb , double click on your user photo and select the option from the window that opens?

Not sure if that will do anything but its worth a try mate.

Try turning off the Display Welcome Screen in the screen saver menu.

Regardless if your user has a password, try turning off "require password on wakeup".
