alright, I have it set in my power options in XP to shut my monitor off after 15 minutes. When I move the mouse to bring the monitor back to life it comes up on the windows login screen and I have to put in my password to get back to windows. The computer doesn't shut down or anything, just when the monitor comes back on it's on the login screen....can anyone tell me why this is? kind of annoying having to put in my password everytime I wake up the monitor.

lmao, I just figured it out by myself, it has to do with the screen saver, somehow the checkbox "on resume display welcome screen" got checked. I don't usually use a screensaver and just have the monitor turn off, but i was messing with desktop themes and somehow it got checked.
