    Goto control panel, user accounts, change the way users log on and off.

    What you stated will NOT help the O/P! He is concerned about returning from
    standby, not a general logon operation!

    I think you guys dint understand what i was trying to say.

    What I want to do is after the screensaver is deactivated, i dont want to
    password protect it.. I want to directly go to the windows login screen and
    use the user defined password in the login screen. ( Not the screensaver
    password).

    I had done it before on the previous desktop, but not on this laptop.

    The screen saver password is the same as the user login password! I know of
    no way to change that mode of operation.

    yes, the screensaver password is same as windows login password. But the
    diff is that.. when screensaver password is activated a dialog window comes
    up and i dont want to set it that way. Now if a guest wants to logon, he/she
    cant .. until and unless you(administrator) take it to the windows login
    screen and login as guest.

    I hope you get my point. :)

    You need to enable "Use Fast User Switching" and "Use the Welcome
    Screen" to do this.

    Go to User Accounts in the Control Panel and select "Change the way
    users Log on or off", then make the appropriate changes.

    There are some requisites before doing that.

    1. A large amount of RAM

    2. A system managed pagefile

    Remember, everything that the original person was doing is saved to the
    pagefile when a second person logs in. This is how the first person can
    return to what he was doing, without any lost information, when the second
    person logs out!

    With insufficient RAM or pagefile the system may lock up or crash! I would
    suggest a minimum of 256 meg of RAM for each person logged in.

    There is third as well, if the user has replaced msgina.dll file with a
    third party file, the Fast User switching may not be available.
