    How to Disable or Enable Password Protection on Wake Up in Vista


    information   Information
    To help secure your computer, Vista requires a password to unlock the computer when it wakes from sleep. This will show you how to enable or disable password protection when your computer resumes or wakes from a sleep mode in one or all of your user account's Power Plans.
    Note   Note
    If you turn off this setting, make sure that On resume, display logon screen is also unchecked in your screen saver settings. See step 9 here: How to Use and Change a Screen Saver in Vista
    Tip   Tip
    For laptops, you will also need to check the Power Plan Option (Step Two) When closing laptop lid to the the action you want to.

    OPTION TWO

    For All Power Plans

    1. Open the Control Panel. (Classic View)

    That's it,
