If you leave the computer for a few minutes without logging out, you’re taken to a lockout screen that shows your user account information. If your user account is password-protected, you need to enter your password to get back to the desktop. This is to prevent other people from using your computer while you’re away. But it makes sense only in a work environment. In a home environment, it may be overkill. You can reconfigure 7 so that you don’t have to reenter your password to get back to your desktop. Here are the steps:
1. Click the Start button, type pow, and click Power Options.
2. In the left column, click Require a Password on Wakeup.
3. If the options under Password Protection on Wakeup are disabled, click Change Settings that Are Currently Unavailable. Then elevate your privileges by clicking Continue or by entering the password for an administrative account.
4. Choose Don’t Require a Password.
5. Click Save Changes.
