My problem started with windows 8 and I thought it might go away with the 8.1 upgrade, but it didn't.

 

Wenever I put my computer into sleep mode and later wake it up, the screen is locked. I can click all I want, but nothing happens. I have to reboot it in order to login.

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanx

Note: If you are not using Windows 8 Professional or Enterprise you will not have access to the group policy editor. Instead you should follow the instructions here.  )
