Windows 10 is forcing me to sign-in when waking up from sleep. I tried to change this setting in "Sign-in options," but the pull down menu is grayed out. There is red text saying, "Authentication is required when this PC wakes from sleep. Security policies on this PC are preventing you from changing this setting." (picture below)
I am signed in as an administrator. I even let Microsoft tech support remotely log in to my PC, but they couldn't figure it out. They tried a work around where I would create a local account without a password. However, Windows would not allow creation of a local account without a password. Therefore, I made a local account with a password. However, Windows was still requiring sign-in when waking up from sleep and the same red message is there.
I am beyond frustrated. This problem started about a week ago. I don't know if it's tied into the 1803 update. I did try going back to an older build of Windows, but that did not fix the problem.
Windows 10 Home, Version 1803
OS Build 17134.48
