    Since the security features are enhanced on Windows, this happens when the password is enabled on the computer to ensure for the more protection for your user account, however you may disable the password and check if that helps you. You may disable the password at your own risk.
    Here are steps to disable the password after waking from sleep.
    1. Click Start.
    2. Click Control Panel.
    3. Click Power Options.
    4. Click on “Require Password on Wakeup” on the left pane.
    5. Select the option “Don’t require a password.”
    Note: when your computer wakes from sleep, anyone can access the data because the computer isn’t locked.

    My husband finally got a second to work on my computer. We kept working on security screens, but that was not it at all. Here is the solution:

    Go to the "Control Panel".
    Click on "Appearance and Personalization".
    Click on "Change Screen Saver".
    Unclick "On resume, display logon screen".

    This will solve ALL the above problems.
