Computer is locked on startup

I run Vista Home Premium. Suddenly for no reason on startup the computer is locked. I have to click on unlock to proceed to desktop. Easy enough but irritating as if I close desktop for whatever reason I have to go through the whole business again. Any advice gratefully accepted.

Go to Control Panel/Power Options and click Require Password on Wakeup. Make sure Don't require a password is selected - you might have to click Change Settings that are Currently Unavailable to change it.
