All the boxes are checked in the properties box for both prompting for password after standby and resuming from screen saver. But it does not prompt for password. If the computer is restarted or user logs out it prompts.

Any ideas?

Are you starting the screen saver manually or is it starting due to inactivity? If starting manually, it is normal for no prompt for the password to be displayed.

Thanks for your reply.

No, this is when the screen saver kicks in after the specified amount of time.

Im gonna have the user un-tick everything, restart, re-tick the boxes. Just hoping someones seen this before and knows the solution.
