... it's called password upon return from screen saver

to fix this, right click on ur desktop, go to properties (or personalize) select screen saver and set it to non, or just untick the "on resume, password protect" if you wanted to save energy

I personally keep mine on all day and let the screen's auto shut down kick in rather than cheesy screen savers


granted this is for my home, if you are on a corporate computer, best not to change this as this is a security thing rather than a convenience thing.
