When I turn on and waking asks for a password, then again, always twice. I want to turn OFF the passwords and not have to enter one at all when waking or turning on, please advise.

If you want to log in automatically when you turn on your PC, evoke dash (press "Super" or "Win" key) then type "login" and click on "Login Screen" icon, then tick on "Log in automatically" option

You can also turn off locking the screen for Screensaver if you type "Screensaver" in dash, then un-select "Lock screen" option
