    unlock my pc

    I know how and why to type my password each time I return to my computer - I
    need to know how to unlock it permanently! I accidently clicked on the lock
    from the Start menu - I have no need to have my pc locked and don't want to
    have to keep typing the password each time I return.

    There are two areas controlling if you have to type a password.

    Screen saver,
    'on resume display logon screen'

    Power options, advanced settings,
    additional settings, 'require a password on wakeup'

    Both can be accessed via screen saver / change power settings dialog.

    You can also not have a password, then you won't be prompted for one each
    time.

    You can automatically logon without a username or password. Details in the
    tutorial.
