Are you talking about the Windows Lock Screen? If so the following information may apply to you.
By default, Reflect v7 runs scheduled backup tasks using the SYSTEM account which does not require that a user be logged in. If you're using the SYSTEM account to run your scheduled backups and backups aren't starting due to the Lock Screen then yeah, something else is amiss. You can check from within the Reflect GUI by going to Other Tasks -> Edit Defaults... -> Schedule. If the option "Use the Windows SYSTEM account to run scheduled tasks is NOT checked, then the User Name (MYCCOMPUTERNAME\myusername) and Password fields must be filled out for an admin account. If you have not been running backups using the SYSTEM account and change Reflect to do so it may require you to update your backup definition files. To verify that specific backup tasks are running using the SYSTEM account you should run Windows Task Scheduler as admin and check the specific Reflect entries there.
If you're not running your backups under SYSTEM and don't want to for whatever reason, you could set Win10 to not require sign-in when the PC wakes from sleep. Under an administrator account this option can be adjusted by opening the start menu and typing sign-in.
