    I just set up a laptop for a friend by DLing ALL the W8 updates, and then installing the 8.1 free update, but it makes you choose a password login. In searching I've found a way to turn that off by unchecking the password option in the user account settings, and it now bypasses it on restart and initial bootup, but it doesn't completely remove this annoying feature. Any time the clock/screensaver kicks in, it still asks for a password.

    Does anyone know how to completely bypass the password login option for W8.1?

    Oops, spoke to soon. It's just another place you disable the password option in the settings.

    For anyone interested, this handy video explains it.
