Windows 7, Set: Require password when resuming after Hibernate and no password needed from Sleep RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am borrowing this from, Volkanbg.. Whom I came across when searching for an answer. When I am temporarily going to be away from my desktop PC, I use sleep. When I am going to be gone a longer time, or over night I use Hibernate, For security I want to have to enter my password from hibernate but not from sleep. It breaks down like this if:

    [password protection on wakeup ENABLED]

    .after sleep -> password required to login
    .after hibernation -> password required to login
    .after shutdown -> password required to login

    [password protection on wakeup DISABLED]

    .after sleep -> password NOT required to login
    .after hibernation -> password NOT required to login
    .after shutdown -> password required to login

     

    [the magical settings I'm still looking for]

    .after sleep -> password NOT required to login
    .after hibernation -> password required to login
    .after shutdown -> password required to login

  • The setting "Require a password on wakeup" is being applied to both sleep and hibernate status, regardless to which status (sleep/hibernate) it wakes up from

    I think you cannot achieve what you want
