Windows 7: Double login issue on domain

Double login issue on domain

I created an image for brand new computers with Windows 7 Professional/Enterprise 32 bit. These computers are connecting to an existing Windows Server 2003/8 domain. The computers were named the same as the old computers, but I removed the old computers from the domain before adding the new ones. I added hundreds computers this way, and a lot of them are requiring anyone to type in their credentials twice before being logged in. The first login the information is accepted, and then shortly thereafter the login screen appears again. Upon entering the username and password a second time, the desktop comes up and everything works. Also some users are having to double click on the mapped network drives before they will connect, whereas others connect automatically.

I am not sure if this is a deployment issue or if it is a networking issue. If you need any additional information I will happily provide it.

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

From what I read about this it's a power options problems.

Go to Control Panel, then Power Options. Click "Require a password on wakeup". Under "Password Protection on Wakeup", click on "Change Setting That Are Currently Unavailable", select the radio button "Don't Require a Password" and then Save Changes. Your done.

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...
