Jay_Jay70 - please read the question.

I don't want it to login automatically - I want it to require a login, for security, not bypass the login :)

:) nope, I need to make XP require the password when coming back from being hibernated.

The password is required on switch on, I need it to be required when it wakes up from hibernation.

Thanks.

Hi,

here the steps as Microsoft winXP help

Open Power Options in Control Panel.
Click the Advanced tab, then click Prompt for password when computer resumes from sleep. The password for which you will be prompted when the computer resumes is the password for the currently logged-on user account.
 Notes:To open Power Options, click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click Power Options.
You use your Windows password for both standby and hibernation.

Regards
