Allow users to select when a password is required when resuming from connected standby

This policy setting allows you to control whether a user can change the time before a password is required when a Connected Standby device screen turns off.

If you enable this policy setting, a user on a Connected Standby device can change the amount of time after the device's screen turns off before a password is required when waking the device. The time is limited by any EAS settings or Group Policies that affect the maximum idle time before a device locks. Additionally, if a password is required when a screensaver turns on, the screensaver timeout will limit the options the user may choose.

If you disable this policy setting, a user cannot change the amount of time after the device's screen turns off before a password is required when waking the device. Instead, a password is required immediately after the screen turns off.

If you don't configure this policy setting on a domain-joined device, a user cannot change the amount of time after the device's screen turns off before a password is required when waking the device. Instead, a password is required immediately after the screen turns off.

If you don't configure this policy setting on a workgroup device, a user on a Connected Standby device can change the amount of time after the device's screen turns off before a password is required when waking the device. The time is limited by any EAS settings or Group Policies that affect the maximum idle time before a device locks. Additionally, if a password is required when a screensaver turns on, the screensaver timeout will limit the options the user may choose.
