[nabs-l] Windows 10 Computer Stuck on Lock Screen?

Here is how to turn off "Hibernate" and "Fast Startup."

1. Go to the command prompt. Press Windows, R, and type cmd.
2. Press Enter on Command Prompt.
3. Type
powercfg/h off

This tells Windows 10 to turn off "Hibernate" and "Fast Startup."

Vejas,

I have had a similar problem on one of my computers. Much of the advice you
have received is good, but we have no way of knowing exactly what is
happening there. I had one case where I could not get past the lock screen
after bringing my laptop out of sleep mode. In the end, I had to force a
shutdown to be able to restart the computer by holding down the power
button. I try to avoid doing that though. Also, I would suggest the advice
you received saying to give it some time is good advice. It is my experience
one is less aware of automatic processes Windows 10 runs, but these
processes can cause delays in particular, one does not always know when a
Windows update is being downloaded or installed. Occasionally, I do see the
warning not to turn my computer off because an update is running, but it is
not always easy to know when something like this is delaying things.
Finally, Windows Defender also runs scans. I find their scans do not seem to
slow my computer down to the degree some scans have in the past, but it is
all done behind the scenes, and one does not always know when they are
running; it is my understanding some of these activities can occur while
your screen is locked. Finally, sometimes, I have found pressing Alt, Tab
seems to get me back to the sign-in screen; however, I have seen variations
on all this on the same computer, even without my changing anything. I have
read where some problems have arisen for some people, with or without screen
readers, from the "Fast Boot" option; I have found I seem to have fewer
problems, now I have turned that option off. I believe if you search for
"Personalize" and then activate the "advanced" options, you will find it if
you want to try that. I can try to find better directions to get there if
you want to try going that route, or perhaps someone will beat me to it.

Best regards,

Steve Jacobson

Hi Jen,
Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately, when I hit enter the computer just
says the name of the key, "enter."
