The PC when idle goes to the log on screen in the task manager asking for the p[assword again, since its unnecessary can anyone tell me how to switch it off,
Thank you,
G

Is your Pc set to password protect on resume in display properties,is this what you mean?

Control Panel - Performance and Maintenance - Power Options - Advanced. Untick "Prompt for a password etc".

In XP, Control Panel - User Accounts - Advanced. In Secure logon, uncheck the "Require users to press Ctrl+Alt+Delete" check box.
