    Okay, my regular computer after inactivity (screensaver) goes back to the welcome screen where I can password protect my stuff and other users can log on as "guest".
    My computer at a vacation rental just stays on me except for start-up. Any idea how to fix this and thanks,
    Dave

    Go to Control Panel > Power options > power schemes and see if the settings there are right for you . Then go to user accounts and set up an account if you are the system administrator .
