Windows 8 Lock Screen

Windows 8 Pro

After my monitor powers off I am getting the windows 8 logon screen.

If my screen savor kicks in and I am near by while the scren savor is runnning I move the mouse and it takes me back to my desk top.

I ran gpedit.msc Computer configuration administrative templates control panel and then personalization
Then I enabled Don Not display the lock screen.
That stops the Windows 8 lock screen from appearing now.

I just do not want to enter a password after my monitor goes blank.

The screen savor does not have On resume, display logon screen checked.

Only because we haven't heard from any other experts on this, i'll suggest maybe there is some sort of glitch happening.    Have you tried checking the box,  applying that,  verifying that the checked functionality is working,   then uncheck it,  apply and verify that the functionality is off?

It's a stab in the dark, but i've seen stranger issues with computers.

It is not the screen savor option

It has something to do the the monitor powering off

Dont understand why when the monitor goes blank it locks the screen.

I tested your suggestion and I have the same results.

Durning the screen savor I can hit any key move the mouse and it goes to my desktop.

Only when screen blanks from power save options.

Reviewed the power save options in advnaced and can not find anything that relates.

Maybe the Display is going black at the same time the computer is going to sleep.  

There is a setting to "Require a password on wakeup",
