in sleep after automatic lock?

(sorry for my message in dutch before)
I don't use a screensaver.
I've configured my laptop to come in sleep after 30 minutes.
But if I first manually lock my laptop does he then come still in sleep?
(I can't check that because after a sleep (without manual locking) I get a login screen when a touch a key)

Right after you get back into Windows look in Event Viewer.
If it did Wake from Sleep, you should see an Event.

Here is a sample of what i see for a Wake Up event.

If you don't want to see a login/pw screen on wakeup, that's a different question/issue.
