Disabling Lock Screens:
There are 3 places to disable the lock screen, depending on version of Windows.
1. Settings -- Accounts -- Sign In Options
Disable any setting for requiring a password or lock screen.

2. Power Settings.
Disable any setting for requiring a password or lock screen.

3. To auto-login on machines with a password (or PIN)
RUN: control userpasswords2
Disable "Users must enter a password". You will be prompted for the password to auto-login with.



Power Management
Missing Hibernate? Want it back? From an elevate command prompt:
powercfg /h /type full

Also, in Power Settings, you can control what the power button does on your device (Sleep, Shutdown, Hibernate, etc)



Personally, I disable Fast Startup. It boots up fast enough either way, and disabling it ensures that a Shutdown and BootUp is the same as a Restart.



Devices acting weird, or not responding after unplug and re-plug?
In Device Manager, for each USB Hub (onboard or external), go to Properties -- Power Management, and uncheck "Allow the computer to turn this device off to save power".
Look at the Properties screen of different USB devices to see if they also have this setting, and uncheck it.
