Solved!

No password required after waking up from Hibernate

Pavilion dv6 notebook
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

if I do not lock my PC screen before I hibernate my notebook PC the PC is not locked after I power on the next time. If I lock the PC screen BEFORE I hibernate the PC the PC screen is locked after I power on.

 

I did not change any of the power settings and the screen was always locked after hibernate/wakeup when I had the original Windows 7 OS.

 

Is anyone else facing this issue? I need to always remember to lock my PC before hibernating. If I forget other people can turn on my PC and access it without a password.

If I remember correctly, there was an option to lock the PC after resuming from hibernate.

 

Control panel>power options>require a password on wakeup

I am wondering if the auto-luck symptom is occuring in your company PC? If it is, it might be caused by the company security setup by your IT guys. Thanks.

No, I do not want to remove the password. There was a password in Win 7 but after Win 10 upgrade the screen does not automatically lock after waking up from hibernate. With Win 7 the screen password would be asked for, by default, regardless of whether I locked my screen before I hibernated my PC.

 

I want the screen to be locked after waking up from hibernate (as it did when I had Win 7) regardless of whether I locked by screen or not before hibernating.

"If I remember correctly, there was an option to lock the PC after resuming from hibernate."

 

Yes, I had that enabled in Windows 7 and it worked fine then. Now, after the Windows 10 upgrade the screen does not automatically lock during hibernate. When I power on the unit I see my desktop as it was before hibernate. That means anyone can access my PC without entering a passord.

 

When I am in front of my PC I will check to see if Windows 10 changed my hibernate/password settings. Maybe it was changed after the upgrade.

Like the cable company, I want to make sure we try the easy stuff first.

 

Have you gone into the Power Options and reset the plan settings?

Start Menu - Settings - System - Power & Sleep - click Additional Power Settings

It will open up the old Control Panel with the different plans.

 

Regular Windows 10 will have two plans showing and sometimes a third under "Show Additional Plans"

Balanced, High Performance and Power Savings.

If you have selected one of these, you can try one to either switch to another plan, or click Change Plan settings and then click Restore Defaults.  Balanced is usually the best setting.

 

You might also have an additional power setting in here, a custom one created by software or by a company admin.  A Software plan that was designed to work with Win7 might not work right with Win10.  Best to change to a standard plan.  But, some software plans will grab it back.  If that happens (you close it out  and then reopen) you will need to find the software in the Apps and Features part of Settings and uninstall it.

 

This is the easy solution.  If this does not work, we will want to check your device manager and see if you have any devices with yellow or red bangs that might not be installed correctly.  Maybe a generic video driver.

Thank you Charles, I checked the Power Settings last night. It turns out the "Require Password on wakeup" was disabled (even though it was enabled in Windows 7. I did some steps (as it was greyed out) to enable it again and now it works.
