    This is a thing that was also on 8.1 (that I hated a lot) and i couldnt remove.
    I have 2 accounts on my pc (home and my own account) and everytime i turn the pc on, the last account that was used logs in automatically (mine asks password actually, but the home's one doesn't, so it just logs in).
    This is a thing i hate, since makes me waste time login out and login with the account i want to use.
    Is out there any option for disable that? In 8.1 that wasn't possible.

    Can't you just log out when you finish your session?

    I do that with my account, but my parents usually just turn it off, so id like to have a solution for that. In win7 that was possible, its strange you cant do that anymore

    I'm going to assume you have no passwords on those accounts. If so, I don't know how to stop it. You can add a password to both, then it won't auto login.

    Or educate your parents to use safe computing practice and log out of their session when they're done (or shut down if they're not using the computer)?

    And how to turn off password check for Microsoft account every time you wake your surface from sleep?
    This is very annoying. Do you guys know how can I disable password check?
    Setting up pin makes it easier but still is there a way to fully disable password check?
    netplwiz settings doesn't seem to work for me too.
    There are two places to set it - one is in Power Options. Check on the left (require a password on wakeup). The other is in Accounts / Sign-in in Settings.

    If you have it disabled - try this to check: Set the sleep timer to something small, like 1 or 2 minutes. Now, let it sleep on its own by leaving it alone for 1-2 mins. Once it goes to sleep, wait a few mins and wake it up. Does it come back on without asking for a password? If so, then try forcing it to sleep by pressing the power button (or sleep button). Wait a few mins and wake it up. Does it ask for a password?

    I've found on my Surface tablets, if I force it to sleep with the button it asks for a password on wake up. But if I let it go to sleep on its own, it doesn't.
