but from the password screen, i rebooted the computer, and it still asks for password on start up.
On my old computers, i've always set a primary user and password, so i've never had this problem.
But this time I got lazy with no password.
and then this happens.
I just restored the computer using laptop recovery function, and I checked net user.
it says my account password never expires, and no password is required.
and it still locked me out. However I checked Power options, and it indeed asks for password on wake.
