Hibernate in W7

In Vista when the computer woke up from hibernate I used to have to click log on. Noticed that in W7 it just resumes.
Don't use a password and I am the only user. Wondered if other people had found this?

It's a choice, just like before, in the power settings.

Re: Hibernate in W7

I had looked in Power Settings before posting but could only identify the Require Password on Waking Up option which I could change but wasn't sure about as I don't use a password.
Is this the correct one?

That is the correct one and if you don't have a password set - it just needs a click on the user to start

Re: Hibernate in W7

Yes, that's it - now acting like Vista used to i.e. click Locked button when it comes out of hibernate.
Thank you for help.
