from sleep straight to desktop

I'm the only user and don't need to prevent access by anyone else. I've figured out how to bypass the password login (auto logon), but when waking from sleep or booting I still go to a sad screen showing my user icon and saying locked, which I have to click on to open the desktop. Is there a way to go direct to the desktop?

Try this...

Control Panel > Power Options > in left column, click on 'Require a password on wakeup' > select 'Don't require a password' > save changes. G

ah, so simple, yet so well hidden! I knew it had to be somewhere
Thanks
