    I have recently been getting the message "this computer is in use and locked" message when I leave my computer sitting idle for a while. Before when I would come back and the computer would "wake up" after moving the mouse it always went back to the log on to user a, b, etc. screen. Are there any computer gurus out there that can help me get rid of this annoying message? When the message is displayed it says it wants me to enter a password to unlock the computer but once I click ok w/o entering anything the computer is back to normal.

    thanks

    Also, if you have no password, you should be able to press enter and see if that works.

    No password has been set for this computer and it's my personal computer. I just don't want to have to click ok everytime this annoying message pops up.

    Check these settings:


    1. On your desktop, right click on an open space and select "Properties"
    2. A "Display Properties" dialog box will appear.
    3. Click on the "Screen Saver" tab at the top.
    4. You should see a check box there that says "On resume, display Welcome screen" or "On resume, password protect"
    5. Uncheck that box.
    6. Next click on the "power" button to bring up the "power options properties" dialog box.
    7. Click on the "advanced" tab.
    8. Uncheck the box that says "Prompt for password when computer resumes..."
    9. Click Apply.
    10. Click OK to close the other box.
    Try that and see if it works.

    Ok I did everything that you said plus switched to one of the pre-installed screen savers from Windows XP. So far so good...I'll post back in the next couple days.

    Update: Everything has been good until today. I got home and turned my monitor on to find the same message was on the screen again. I don't know what has sparked this message since I got it to go away but it's getting very annoying.
