    Somehow i recently turned this feature on, and its driving me nuts. Its not a screensaver thing. After 30 idle seconds the box appears and locks my workstation. I have to ener my password to get back on. Problem is it happens after 30 seconds, so I may be reading an article or watching a video and it locks and goes to desktop. How do I turn the "locks workstation" feature off? I dont need or want it to lock the workstation. Thanks for the help.

    In Display Properties, go to the Screen Saver tab, and uncheck the box "On resume, password protect".
