    Log on password question

    I have to log back on with a password every time my laptop goes to sleep. Can I disable the password requirement so it boots straight to the tiles or desktop? It really is annoying to have to enter the password every time.

    To maintain security you can change the logon to a PIN which is much easier to enter.

    If someone tries to get in by guessing pins the system will revert to your password after a few bad attempts. This will keep them out and let you know that someone was fiddling the next time you start it up.
