How to quickly and easily disable Login after sleep in Windows 11

The Windows 11 operating system from Microsoft comes with several security-related features to ensure your system remains safe without anyone having unauthorized access to the computer.

One such security feature is the Login after sleep where if a device running the Windows 11 operating system is left attended for a specific duration, then the computer automatically goes into the sleep mode. When the PC wakes up through any of the triggers, it requires the user to enter the login credentials. This is to make sure that the user who has been granted access to the device is the one trying to access it.

However, for many home users, there’s no need for such a security feature and it may become annoying at times. Thankfully, the company is offering an option for users to disable this feature on their computers.

In this step-by-step guide, we will show you how to quickly and easily disable the Login after sleep feature on a computer running the Windows 11 operating system.
