I've been trying to disable Windows 10 Pro (Build 15063) from prompting for my password when my computer wakes up for a while now, and can't figure it out.
I have a few PCs joined to a Windows domain (2 x 2016 DCs) and tried setting a GPO to disable the
Require a password when a computer wakes (plugged in) (and also the
'' battery one) setting under
Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > Power Management > Sleep Settings.
The policy gets applied properly on my PCs, but whenever I put a PC to sleep, it asks for my password no matter what.
Here's the results of
Looking at the
Sign-in options screen, I see the following, and cannot change it. It stays as
Authentication is required when this PC wakes from sleep (in red) even if I remove all policies related to authentication (I even tried to clear all GPOs):
I'm kind of dumbfounded at this point and ready to call this a Windows bug. Does anyone have any clue?
Edit 1 Tried to re-format my main PC. It allowed me to pick not to require a password in the Sign-in screen before I joined the domain, as expected (and didn't require a password on wake up). As soon as I've joined my domain, I was unable to pick an option (as expected, but I was required a password on wake up).
