    Default XP Pro Logon

    Hi there learned and erudite people

    After rebuilding a corrupt user/profile on my PC, I now have to enter my password to log back on to my profile. Previously I did not.
    i.e after about ten minutes the screen goes blank and after a keystroke or mouse movement (that sounds a bit vulgar) the screen comes back to life with the front screen, with my 3 users available. The one that was in use when the screen went blank, shows the number of programs running but I have to enter my password to get back on. I know this is good security but I want to know how to stop this if I wish.
    I am not running a screen saver (well its set to "Blank") and under "Power"Options> Advanced, the "Prompt for Password when computer resumes from standby" is not ticked.
    I have looked under "User Accounts"in Control Panel and can not find anything there .
    The audio/graphic "Help and Support"does not give me any clues.
    What am I missing guys.

    Cheers

    If you really don't want it go to Control Panel/Users and passwords and set your password to blank.

    You missed one In the screen saver window there's also an option that you can tick to take you to the logon screen... this seems to work even if no screen saver is set - make sure this is not checked.
