    Remove password when opening laptop lid


    I have removed the password on startup, I have removed the password on startup, I have removed password on wakeup. But I still get prompted to enter a password when I close the lid of the laptop then open it without logging off & logging on.. How do I get rid of this password?

    That was a good thought.. Unfortunately my Screen Saver settings look like yours... Screen Saver = none and "on resume, display logon screen" is unchecked..

    I just tested it.. I need to enter the password when prompted for it.. It will not let me in with just clicking enter at it.

    genet - Ok that did it, thanks... took me a little while to figure out how you navigated from Power options to System Settings, as after "Power Options" the navigation bar offered nothing else..

    Finally saw the left Column showed "Choose what Closing the Lid does".... Duh, Duh, Duh... Why didn't I see that???

    Again, thanks to both of you... Microsoft sure makes it difficult for you to get all these aggravating passwords knocked out, and surfing the net I could find nothing about the lid closing password.. I hopefully have them all cleared now..
