    Just installed the 10041 Preview on my HP Stream 7

    Does Microsoft really plan to keep that Lockscreen "Press Windows Key and Power Key to Unlock, or press CTRL ALT DELETE" Nonsense ???
    Since my Tablet is locked automatically after 15 Minutes, I canīt unlock it anymore by swiping up and typing my password...

    Even worse - I canīt unlock it AT ALL since the Stream 7 dies not recognize the Windows Key Press until youīre logged in. Seems to be a specific Stream 7 Problem, since it works on the Surface Pro 3. Yeah I know itīs a technical preview etcetc., but I donīt really get the reason behind that new Unlock procedure...

    ANY Idea how to disable that "feature" via the Registry? I donīt want to disable the Password, but I want to be able to swipe up again to unlock when a password is needed.

    I assume you have changed both the screensaver/timeout options and the power options?

    I did have this and randomly it appeared to do it, but 95% of the time I could awake the pc (surface) by swiping/hitting the space bar.

    I actually like this feature, It has happened to me on several occasions the screen unlocked by accident which would possibly cause all sorts of issues and obviously waste battery.

    I assume you left feedback on the app for this with MSFT..
