    I had a password on my account so you would have to log in after a few minutes. I removed the windows password because I don't need that anymore, but now my account locks after a few minutes and I have to select my picture or account name to open it...no password is required. How do I get rid of that so if the computer goes to sleep I just wake it up and it opens the account without me putting in a password or having to select anything?

    You got to uncheck On resume, display logon screen in Screen Saver settings.
