How to disable Password login from sleep mode on HP laptop

I have an HP laptop with Windows 8.1.  I disabled the password login and set it to go straight to the desktop.  I do want it to go to sleep after a period of no activity, I just don't want it to challenge for a password.

Should be a in the power options "Require password on wakeup".  You have to select Don't require a password etc.

Go to Control Panel > Power Options
