Accordingly, the device can just wake up without any manual intervention from the person. Once awake, the notebook’s Windows Hello infrared camera lets the user to sign in to the system. The same feature also works the other way around. If the user has walked away from the notebook, it can automatically lock itself and put the device to sleep.
