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.
