    I want to set up a screensaver password on several XP machines on the sales floor, but when I check that box and say "OK", it does not prompt me for a password. Has the former owner used a password here and, if so, how can I change it? Thanks!

    Nevermind...I found it. The user must have a Windows logon password and that's the same used when the screen saver is interupted.
