    Have you tried this?:
    Open command prompt. Type netplwiz uncheck the box and type PW twice. Click OK and restart.
    Works for me.

    When you uncheck the box you need to tap apply, then it will ask for the PW.

    uncheck the "users must enter a user name and password to use this computer" i think is what he is getting at.

    to uncheck just click it once like you would if you wanted to check it :D

    I have do that. When I starting up he don't ask for a password. If I starting up after a while (the next day) he ask again for a password.

    i will do what he said tonight and wait a day. make sure its not "resuming hibernation" I've never done it. just told many people how to do it.

    make sure to hit apply then enter the password twice

    hey, i found the last thing you need to do..

    power options, require password on WAKEUP.

    mine is still grey but i will mess with it some more. but i think that's whats going on with it.

    when i turn it on (not wake up) it goes right to desktop so we are closer
    ahh in the screen with the greyed out "don't require password" up top there is a "change settings that are currently unavailable. click that then click "don't require a password"

    that should be the last thing you need if you go into sleep mode. not shut down
