When I wake my computer up from sleeping, it goes to the blue Windows XP login screen? How do I get it to just go back to my desktop?

Thanks,
juniorgeek

When you say 'sleep', do you mean Standby, Hibernate, or the screen saver?

hey juniorgeek,

try this: right-click on the desktop, go to properties, ScreenSaver tab. from there, uncheck the box: Prompt for password when going off standby[or somesuch]. that's it!
