Windows 7: Why double login needed coming out of sleep mode?

Why double login needed coming out of sleep mode?

Weird quirk that for a long time I thought was my imagination, but it's not:

When my PC goes into sleep mode (typically while not logged in), I am asked for my password, I enter it, I briefly get the bright blue screen saying Welcome - and then boom, back to the login screen and I have to enter my password again.

And I don't think it's a matter of first login wakes me from sleep; second gets me to my desktop. I've started just pressing enter on the password screen the first time, which of course tells me that there's a password error. Then I'll enter my password and I'm in - after just one successful password entry.

If it's some kind of bios-specific thing, my MB is a Gigabyte, with the specifics shown in my HW profile.

Why is Windows 7 asking me to enter my password twice to get to my desktop from sleep mode?

Enter Control Panel>Power Options, on the right side select Require Password on Wake, turn it off. See if this is satisfactory.

Have not done that yet, but I think you're right. Machine went to sleep during the Super Bowl (probably during the first half) while I was logged in, and I only needed one PW to get in.

Guessing that the double login is one password to wake, one password for normal login.

I seem to be getting BSOD every time I come out of sleep mode with my new laptop (Asus G74SX-TH71). I put in an SSD did a clean install of Windows 7 Professional x64. I have disabled the bluetooth in device manager deliberately as I don't plan on using it.
