For Windows 7:

  • Go to "Control Panel" → "Hardware and Sound" → "Power Options"
  • Look for "Change Advanced Power Settings"

    • It may be under "Change when the computer sleeps"
    • Some systems may not have it
  • Expand the top two options, and then set "Require a password on wakeup" to "Yes".
