Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

I believe that in your case the "require password from waking from sleep" is turned on in power options.

Go to Control Panel, then Power Options "look upper left side". Click "Require a password on wakeup".

Select the radio button "Don't Require a Password" and then Save Changes. Your done.
