Password Required on Wake-Up

Issue/Question

My computer goes to sleep and requires a password when I wake it up. Can I disable this feature?

Environment

  • WKU-owned Computer
    • Windows 7+

Resolution

For security reasons, the IT Division applies Group Policies to WKU-owned computers that require a password when computers are woken up from sleep. This feature can not be disabled. If the computer is going to sleep too frequently, the amount of time before a computer goes to sleep may be changed in the Power Options.
