Ok i am feeling dumb here but i can't find the setting to allow me to set the screensaver password. I click the box to enable it on settings but it never asks for it. I have done alot of reg edits i dunno if it is disabled there but anyhow HELP!! LoL

screensaver password is the tickbox, On Resume Show Welcome Screen, it is under the Screen Saver Tab under Display Properties.

what gtgarside said makes sense..if im understanding you correctly though.. you are asking where you can actually set up the password for the screensaver, not just enable it, right??

if thats the case.. then actually you don't have to create a password at all..it will just prompt you for the password you use to logon to windows with.

if im totally wrong..call me dumb..its too early in the morning..but, at least that's what i thought you were meaning....

lol..

If your user account is P/W protected then if you tick the box I told you then when you either wiggle the mouse or tap a button on keyboard then it will show the welcome screen, from there you can then type your password and get back into your account
