If you do not use a password, you will still go to the Login screen RRS feed

  • Question

  • My new computer is very fast. It starts Windows in 3-4 seconds. I do not use a password so it goes directly to Windows without opening the login screen.

    After the last update (not 1909), the startup has entered the login screen and stays there for about 10 seconds before moving on to Windows. It now takes 13-15 seconds to start Windows. It's longer than my old computer.

    Windows 10 Home 1903 (do not want to update to 1909)

    I looked in the log. I didn't get this message when I go straight to Windows but get it when I get stuck for several seconds on the login screen. I see that it is 11 seconds before the next message in the log. In total, Windows startup takes 14 seconds. Thus 11 seconds more than when it does not get stuck on the login screen. It is this process that gets stuck on the login screen:

    .................................................. .................
    Generally:
    The system has been reset from energy saving mode.
    Energy Saving Time: 2019 - 12 - 23T02: 20: 02.247748300Z
    Activation Time: 2019 - 12 - 23T10: 16: 46.521807500Z
    Source of activation: Unknown
    ................................................. .................

    In the "Energy Options" preferences box that is not easily selectable in Windows 10, there is a row:
    "Power Save Mode / Allow Hybrid Power Mode Setting"

    It was marked "On". I re-marked it to "Off".

    I turned off the computer and turned off the power to the computer (which I always do). After a few minutes I restarted it and the computer went on without going to the login screen. I'll test this again later after a longer shutdown and we'll see if I solved the problem....

    A few days later:

    I started the computer without any problems several times but today the problem is that it stands and chews on the login screen back. The 3-4 second boot time is now back to 13-15 seconds again.

    It's not the time it takes to start up Windows I get annoyed with, but it's because it does things I haven't set up that I'm annoyed with.

    Where is wrong and how do I remove the pause in the login screen in 10-11 seconds?
