I'm not crazy about this idea, but a client recently asked me to configure Windows XP on his laptop to not to require a login after the laptop comes out of sleep or hibernate mode.  Is this possible?

You should be able to change this setting in the "Power Options" control panel under the "Advanced" tab.
