Greetings. I recently started college not too long ago and I've been having a little issues with the security of my Gateway laptop running Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack II. I would like to enable the prompt for password feature when returning from a screen saver. However, when I go into the options, the only thing I can check is 'On resume, display welcome screen'. I've searched around a bit more but can't seem to find anything. Any help would be greatly appreciated on where to find this feature.

I've checked there, it doesn't give me that option. It only says 'on resume, display welcome screen.'

Do you have a password set when you start up Windows and login to YOUR user account?
If NOT, then that is what you need to do first.

I had that at first, then removed it and reset it. Now I'm able to select that option. I appreciate your time and help, DaveA, thanks a bunch.
