I have finally understood the need for two Accounts on a PC, Admin. and User. All seems to be going well re the accounts except for the fact everytime I leave the PC for a few minutes or cease working on something, the screen goes back to the login screen and I have to put my password in all over again. Even just switching accounts can cause me to have to re key in my password. There must be a place somewhere to adjust this but so far cannot find same.

Can any one clue me in as to what to do or where to go to adjust this problem?

Go to Start > Control Panel > Power Options. This is where you can set it to not go in standby or make it a longer period of time before the computer goes into standby. If you click the "advanced" tab there is an option that show "prompt for password when computer resumes from standby", uncheck this option if it is checked.
