Question

How can I disable the password protection for the screensaver?

Answer

After the installation of Sophos SafeGuard Disk Encryption the password protection for the screensaver is active.

The check for the password protection is not set in the control panel.

To disable the password protection you have to change the registry key "ScrSaverProt" in the registry hive HKLM\Software\Utimaco\SGLogon.

If this key does not exist or is set to "1", then you need a password to unlock the desktop. To switch off the password protection you have to create this key with the type "REG_DWORD" and set it to "0".
