    So everything being ok with the screensaver should be another problem.
    When I lock the PC and when I do the unlock, I always have to click the "switch user".
    Could be something about the policies ?

    Having secure sign-in enabled is why you are having to click on "Switch User".

    Since this option is grayed out, you have a group policy set that is enforcing it. You should be able to use step 3 in OPTION TWO of the tutorial below to undo this group policy.
