How to Password Protect on Resume


If you forget to lock your computer before stepping away, windows can put up a screen saver and lock your session after a certain time period. Another safeguard is if your machine goes to sleep or power save mode, it will also ask for a password when it resumes. In order to get back into your computer, simply enter your windows password* at the prompt.

*Your windows password is the first password you enter after turning on your machine. It will log you into the operating system.
