Default Windows XP Accounts

I am running XP Home edition and recently added an account for my daughter.
I understand that XP now prompts for a password to access each account, but what bothers me is the account duration of being idle before XP reverts back to the welcome screen and prompts for your password again.

Can I change this time so the duration before it reverts back to the welcome screen appears?

Yup, it all has to do with your screensaver.

Go into your screensaver preferences (Right Click desktop -> Properties -> Screensaver tab)

In there, select a longer time for the screensaver before it activates, or uncheck the box that says "On resume, display Welcome screen"

Its a frigging Laptop, not a Labtop!!!!
