    Right now I have it set to never ask for a password. Unfortunately, it asks for a password every time I hit the power button. I tried changing it from Never to 15 minutes with no success. Is there anything I can do besides resetting the device? I'm using a Toshiba Encore 2.

    Are you trying to login with your Microsoft Account?

    From what I've seen so far you have to log in to your Microsoft account using your password or you can replace it with a pin. You can use a local account to login to your machine and that won't require a password but I haven't seen any way to stop you having to login to a Microsoft account without having to enter a password. The only way I can think of is using Windows Hello, which most people can't do right now as it requires specific hardware.

    Thanks for the info. I've been using a pin since it's a lot easier.
