When my computer comes out of standby mode. It still ask me which user I am. Still, I'm the only user. So this seems a bit useless.

enter image description here

How can I prevent this extra click? Standby settings don't seem to cope with: "don't show login screen". I just want standby to log into my profile right away. I have no password set.

Go to Power Options and select your active Plans settings and go to advanced settings

the Option Require a password on wakeup should be set as No

See if this fixes your problem, you will need to do this for all plans that are used on your system.
