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.

This was for win XP, but I checked a 2000 machine and it is in the same place
