    I have Vista Home Premium. How do I get it to quit locking the user account

    Hi Brad

    Right click some blank space on the desktop and click Personalise
    Click Screen Saver
    Uncheck the box On Resume, display login screen

    That should do the trick.

    Any ideas?

    Also check to see if you have password protection on wakeup enabled. If
    so, disable it. You can see how in Step Two here:

    Hope this helps you,
