I have a WinXP Prof in my Dell Latitude System.
My screen gets locked every 5 minutes or so if there is no activity.

Could you please let me know how to disable it ? I have full Admin rights on the system.

Regards
Siva

You should go to power management and make sure password protect on resume is not checked.

Where in power management is that password protect option?  I've never seen it in there before.
