    Hi,

    I just bought a new ultrabook and I love its SSD and instant-resume. What I don't love, is that it instantly resumes to the login screen. I have only a single user account, with no password associated with it, and yet I'm still unable to find a way for my computer to skip the login screen when I lift the lid of my notebook after the machine has suspended. Other posts say how to do it to skip the login on first booting the system (netplwiz), or how avoid entering sleep / hibernate modes, but neither of those options are quite what I'm looking for. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,
    Matt

    Have you looked at your (advanced) Power options?
    First option in the dropdown is "require a password on wake from sleep - Yes/no)
    Worth a look?
