Essentially, if you do not lock the system and just close the lid or press the power button (which is configured to sleep), the system will not require the PIN on wakeup. Anyone know how to fix this?

I've also applied a tweak in Winaero Tweaker called 'Require password on wakeup', but it doesn't do anything for me.
