    Gandolf,

    The settings are the same in Windows 8.1 as well. Please post screenshots show what you are seeing different to see if it may help.
    From your description, it sounds like you have screensaver password protection enabled. Double check again using step 3 in OPTION ONE of the tutorial below to make sure the On resume, display logon screen box is unchecked.
