    password protection, log on screen, hibernate & screen saver problem


    My user account is password protected and "require a password on wake up" is turned on .

    But when I resume from hibernate it return to desktop instead of log on screen. The same think happens with screen saver -on resume display log on screen-.

    Hibernation in it self saves everything thats in RAM at the time the system is put into that mode. It should not lock the PC as that wasn't the state it was in before it hibernated. perhaps lock the PC before you push the hibernate button!

    Actually I have already test this function to another 3 laptops, and when you resume from hibernation they resume to log on screen and they ask for password. Same think for screen saver..
