I scoured the forums and found people with similar issues but none of their solutions would work.
I setup a Lock Screen picture through PC Settings/Personalize in Windows 8 last week on my laptop and it synced perfectly to my desktop as well. But yesterday I noticed my lock screen picture was not active when I opened my laptop it went straight to my picture password.
The lock screen picture still is functional on my desktop when it awakes from sleep or a test lock. But it refuses to show up when my laptop comes up from sleep/lock. So I went into my laptop PC Settings under Personalize and it is showing this screen.
I cannot access any Group Policy stuff on my laptop since it is using Windows 8 (Home). But my desktop is using Windows 8 Pro (w/ Media Center). Both of my copies of Windows are already activated and I use my Microsoft Account to log on to both so everything will sync correctly.
*Edit* All of my Group Policy information on my desktop is set to "Not Configured" so it shouldn't conflict with any prevention of settings on my laptop.
I really like Win8 and this problem is a little silly and I'd like to correct it! Thanks for the help!
