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

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