Accounts: Users must be prompted to authenticate when the system wakes from sleep (on battery)

ef3c9259-d0d3-434a-8e7c-ab945deaa3f0

A system that does not require authentication when resuming from sleep may provide access to unauthorized users. Authentication must always be required when accessing a system. This setting ensures users are prompted for a password when the system wakes from sleep (on battery).

Remediation

To fix this configure the policy value for Computer Configuration >> Administrative Templates >> System >> Power Management >> Sleep Settings >> "Require a password when a computer wakes (on battery)" to "Enabled".
