when working in windows 7 and after short periods of inactivity it resorts back to the welcome screen and I have to click on the user name to continue, how do I stop this annoying feature.

Power options.
Choose when to turn of display.
Make sure they are set to never.
I also have the same options on show when the computer sleeps.

Or it may be a screen saver cutting in:
Start, Control Panel, Appearance and Personalization. Under the Personalization heading click "Change screen saver" and then choose "None" from the drop down list and click Apply or OK.
