    I have a Lenovo W530 with fingerprint reader. In the past it would both turn the computer on then log on and wake the computer from standby or sleep. About 4 weeks ago I upgraded from Windows 10 to Windows 10 Creator and the fingerprint reader will now wake my computer from sleep but requires the Windows password to be typed in. When turning the computer on the reader still works. Has anyone heard of this and a solution?
