    My "Choose" button either goes back to Edit Plan Settings or this, and THIS says "System Settings":

    Jon,

    That's the same "System Settings" screen as the OP's screenshot. It's the same in 8 and 8.1.

    The difference is that since your PC doesn't run or use a battery, you wouldn't have the "On battery" or "Plugged in" options for each available setting based on per system.

    If I'm missing something, then please let me know what it is.

    I am using a Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13. Can't tell whether 8.0 or 8.1. There doesn't seem to be an app for power management.

    It's NOT though, it looks similar but the functions are all different.

    Wait, I get it now, I don't have the Battery settings.

    OK so it is the same thing but it is still not the area to use the change the advanced settings, that's in the Plan Itself.

    I still need help here.
    Here is one of two screens that say I have the password protection off.

    The other screen:

    So is my best option now to reset or restore Win8?
    Thanks for any help.

    I'm having the opposite problem and it's extremely annoying. I want a password prompt after my computer sleeps. I never had this problem with Windows 7 or 8.0 but this cropped up in 8.1. I'm perplexed that there are multiple control panels that do the same thing.

    After 8.1 update, no change.


    Brink;
    Since I still have the problem and the 8.1 installation didn't change it, there is no point to doing a reset is there?
    So a complete reinstallation of Windows is my last option?
    Should I contact Microsoft or Lenovo first?

    Hello Bob,

    I'm not sure what else to suggest other than to start over with a clean install since we tried all the usual suspects.
