How to turn off the password requirement when Windows 8 awakes from sleep

From the Metro interface (this is the one with all the different titles)

Scroll up to the right hand corner to bring up the charm bar

Click Settings

Click Change PC Settings

Click Accounts

Click Sign-in Options

Look for Password policy

Under that there is a change button.  Click that.  It'll change it so that every time the computer goes to sleep, it won't require you to login.  I would recommend though having it lock when the screen saver comes on for at least some protection.
