The notebook started to NOT ask for user-password when being awake after a sleep or hibernate.  After checking all the configurations, we found that the problem is in the power plan where the 'Required Password on wakeup' is grayed out (see pic below).  This seem to happen after installing 'Advance SystemCare'.

We change the plan from 'Advance SystemCare' to Windows Recommended Plan.  We are going test if that solved the problem, but wanted to know how can stay with the "Advance SystemCare" power plan and also set enable 'Required Password on wakeup'?

i would uninstall advanced system care - i'm very cautious with "advanced" software in general
you can also do a system restore if it won't uninstall

This apps is from "iobit uninstaller" we've been using for a long time; we would like to keep it.

We have solved the problem by selecting the "Windows Power Plan" instead of "'Advance SystemCare Power Plan" and it worked.  The notebook when turning on after a sleep or hibernate, always asks the password.

Nevertheless, if possible, we would like to stay with the "Advance SystemCare" power plan.  How can we enable enable 'Required Password on wakeup' on this plan?

Thanx ion advance.

Yes.  As seen in the pic, it's a standard step,  the apps changes the plan (as displayed above).

What we mean by "standard step" is that no matter how many time the apps uninstall and re-install, the apps 'Advance SystemCare' does as its standard process to gray out the power plan in 'Required Password on wakeup'.

In every reinstalled we change the plan from 'Advance SystemCare' to Windows Recommended Plan and works fine.

We would like to maintain with the "Advance SystemCare" power plan.  How can we enable enable 'Required Password on wakeup' on this plan and not be gray out?

how is the power setting in power options of control panel?
i would try the install  with different settings - on, off, balanced.
other than that - i have no idea

you can also start looking for all advanced system care keys in the registry - and look if one is of interest - but that would be time consuming

i know that - that is not what i said
uninstall advanced system care  - then set the power plan in windows to balanced, or energy saving - then install again.
if needed, do the same while using the other setting - to test if it helps

that was done also.  For some reason everytime it's installed, it grays-out the 'Required Password on wakeup'.  

As mentioned in the question, our solution seemed to be changing the plan from 'Advance SystemCare' to Windows Recommended Plan, but we want is how to maintain plan from 'Advance SystemCare' and also have NOT gray-out 'Required Password on wakeup'.

We noticed that after installing the program 'Advance SystemCare', from www.iobit.com, Windows no longer request user-password when being awaked after Hibernate.

After checking what is causing the problem, we found that the program altered the Power Plan of Windows to it's own.  We solved the problem so Windows asks again the user-password by changing the Power Plan back to Windows standard.  However, if possible, we would like to know how can we stay with 'Advance SystemCare' Power Plan (as setup when installed) but enabling 'Required Password on wakeup'.

Can this be done?

All you should have to do is click on "Change settings that are currently unavailable" => and then you'll be able to change the password option.

In your question screenshot - right under battery there is hyperlink-looking option to change disabled settings.

As noted, just look at the screenshot you posted => about an inch above what you circled in red you'll see "Change settings that are currently unavailable".    Just click on that, and then the options you want to change will be available to you.
