 +  * If your computer has been configured at LSCE, it will always try to connect to the LSCE wired network to check if your password has changed, when you type your password on the login screen.\\ \\ **If you are not on the LSCE wired network** (e.g when you use the (eduroam) WiFi or when you are outside LSCE), there will be a 1-2 minutes delay until Windows is sure that it can't connect to the LSCE password server before starting the session... Windows is not slow, this is just an **annoying connection timeout delay**.\\ \\ The **easy workaround** is just to stop the network, type your password, ​and then restart the network 
 +    * laptop + WiFi: you just have to activate the **airplane mode**, type your password, and leave the airplane mode 
 +      * **Activating airplane mode** from the login screen: look for //Lock screen// in [[https://​www.windowscentral.com/​how-enable-or-disable-airplane-mode-windows-10|How to enable or disable Airplane mode on Windows 10]]

 +    * Desktop or laptop connected to an ethernet cable outside LSCE: in this rare case, just be patient, or temporarily unplug the network cable

 +  * When you start your computer //from scratch//, you have to wait for Windows to start, launch your applications,​ type your passwords, etc... Fortunately,​ you can also **restart from the exact state where you were**, by [[other:​win10config#​checking_power_settings_and_activating_hibernation|using the hibernation mode]] (aka //Mise en veille prolongée//​). 
 +    * Your computer will **not** use the battery when it is hibernating 
 +    * All network connections will of course be brutally closed when your computer enters hibernation,​ so it is better to cleanly close the remote applications (text editors, etc...) and terminals before hibernation
