In some earlier version of Windows, ISTR an option to have Windows prompt for a password when returning from sleep. I can't find that in Windows 11, is it there? (I do have a password enabled for Windows log-on.)

This will require you to enter the password on waking from sleep, modern standby or hibernation.

See if this is any good, there are .reg file to enable / disable at the bottom of the page
Well, so far I tried gpedit.msc:

and the Enable_wake_password.reg file from the link in @The-Hive's post, but surprisingly (after a few reboots) they didn't work. Now to move on to the other suggestions above. Stay tuned...
