Question

Password requirement

by fogey0 / September 30, 2015 7:20 PM PDT

I managed to eliminate the password requirement when starting up and restarting but I haven't figured out how to do it when the computer wakes from "sleep". Is there a way to do that?

I use password to login but no word is needed when wake from sleep. Why not use psw for login? Just make it simple and pick the combination so that you can do it with one hand,
