We have an issue with the password protected screensaver, it doesn't display the user name, blank user name field when screensaver is activated.  On some servers it shows the user name.  Is there a reg setting to display user name when password protected mode is turned on in screensaver.

Hi.

Are you talking about the unlock screen that shows after the mouse is moved and the screensaver finishes? Is it there where you would like to see the name of the user who was logged on?

Correct, McKnife...  I want the userid populated, its doing it on some 2003 servers, but not others, so it must be some type of reg setting.  Sorry for the late reply.
