In Windows 8, in the scenario where there is a single user that has a Microsoft Account (i.e., they have created their account via a Microsoft email address) how does one disable the password prompt when unlocking the screen?
The Windows 7 analogy would be to disable the screensaver password prompt.
I can do this on a "local" account (one not backed by Microsoft) but the setting seems to have no effect on connected accounts.
- create an account using email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
- Lock the screen with WinKey+L
- Attempt to unlock, by clicking the mouse, without entering a password.
