    I have this set to No in Power options in the Control Panel. It does not work. When I wake from Sleep, the SP3 still asks for my password.

    Any suggestions?

    Do you have any work or school Exchange Accounts on the device? If so, your Mail Admin could be over-riding this through Exchange Active Sync Policies, so the only way around this is removing the offending accounts and resetting the local security policy.

    Try resetting Local Security under the Users Control Panel, it is a Hyperlink on the left side of the control panel. Then reconfigure....
