machine coming out of standby

When my computer comes out of standby it always has a password box there and I have to hit ok to get back into windows.  there is no password.

How do I get that to stop, so when it comes back from standby it does not require that step.

Thanks!

Do a right mouse button on your desktop.  Select properties.  

Go to the screen saver tab.  Uncheck the password protected box.

Joe,

It is not a screen saver password.   There is no screensaver.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Randy,

Sorry your right that is not the right spot:

1. Click "Start", choosing "Control Panel".
2. Select the "Power Options" control panel.
3. When the "Power Options Properties" multi-tabbed dialog box appears, click the "Advanced" tab.
4. Uncheck "Prompt for password when computer resumes from standby".
5. Click "OK" to close the dialog box.
