    I would like to pass this on to Windows 8 and 8.1 users.

    This is to bypass Lock Screen upon waking up from Sleep mode, and go directly to Sign In page.

    Go to Charm bar ( Win logo + C ) > select Start > type gpedit.msc > click gpedit.msc >
    left panel.....
    expand (click the pointer in front of ) Computer Configuration
    expand Administrative Templates
    expand Control Panel
    click Personalization
    right panel ......
    double click " Do not display the lock screen "
    at the popup box, click Enable > click OK
    exit local group policy editor window.

    Give this a try...... press Win key + L

    Thanks a ton for this useful tip.

    I have always hated the sleep mode in Windows but while I usually disable this feature, with Windows 8 I just leave it as is. Even though it's really annoying have the LockScreen coming up whenever I delay more than a few minutes to get back on my computer.

    Thank you very much this is good to know. The lock screen does waste some time and it might be better to disable it.
