Logon required on awakening?

When I awaken the PC, the TV asks me to logon. Is this necessary?

Go to Control Panel>Power Options. Click on "Require a password on wakeup" on the lefthand side. In the resulting System Settings page, click on "Change Settings that are currently unavailable", select "Don't require a password" radio button and save the changes. Check whether it resolves your problem.

Glad it resolved your problem.

When a problem is resolved always report it by clicking on the red triangle with an exclamation mark on the top right of your post. That will help other people having the same problem to look into it for a resolution.
