I have several new clients running Windows 7 and I cannot seem to find an easy way to disable the Prompt for Password on Wakeup from Suspend/Hibernate and Sleep. (I have found the option in the control panel, but was hoping for a reg key setting). Is there a registry key or group policy enforcement that I am missing?

There is a group policy setting for this under User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> System -> Power Management called "Prompt for password on resume from hibernate / suspend".

Thanks so much. I can set that on my next windows 7 image. Your response also led me to a way to do it using powercfg.exe. I think I am going to add this as a script on my KBOX.

0 disables the password prompting 1 enables it. I disabled it on all power schemes this should catch-all since I dont have any custom power schemes.

NOTE: where <profile> is SCHEME_BALANCED, SCHEME_MAX, SCHEME_MIN or a custom profile GUID from powercfg -l

The Windows key - also known as the Super key, Meta key, Windows logo key, the WinKey, the Start key, MOD4, or rarely the Flag key - is a keyboard key which was originally introduced on the Microsoft Natural Keyboard before the release of Windows 95. This key became a standard key on PC keyboards since the release of the Windows 95 operating system. On keyboards lacking a Windows key, Ctrl+Esc can instead be used in Windows, though some functionality is lacking.[1]
