SOLUTION:

Check the setting:

Note:

But if resume right after screen saver locks PC, the system would enter the desktop directly without displaying Windows logon interface. Because it needs to wait a while to display logon screen on resume after entering screen saver (this is designed to allow user to wake up his PC from screen saver to desktop immediately by swaying the mouse without inputting logon password when the screen saver appears).
