I'm not sure if this is the problem, but:
 - use Mikal613's solution
or
 - just turn off the ScreenSaver.

The locking actually happens when the ssaver is turning off, it's just its password-protection, but better than in Win 9x.

Did you check hibernation and power-savig mode settings??

You can either disable them or disable password-checking at resume.
Te second option can be found in power management settings in control panel ;), i can't give you the english name, but there's a option about aking for password when resuming from standby or hibernate.
