Windows 7: Password and sleep settings won't stay saved

10 Oct 2013   #1

Windows 7 64 bit
Password and sleep settings won't stay saved

When I set my computer to go to sleep in two hours and set it to not require a password when waking up the settings won't stay saved and revert back to original settings. Is this just another glitch that you have to live with or is there a work around?

How to delete saved Username/Password?
While trying to access my Mac from Windows 7, I saved the Username/Password login details. However, because the Mac's login is case sensitive, these were incorrect and now Windows 7 tries to use the incorrect saved login each time and fails. I cannot find where to delete the incorrect settings.
