Right click the desktop, click properties then screensaver, click power, click advanced, remove tick from prompt for password when computer resumes from standby, click apply

Click Hibernate and remove tick from enable hibernation, click apply

You will have to have a profile

If it is a security issue, you can make folders private.

Create another profile, password protect this and keep delicate files in that
