Windows areo automatically disables itself

Hay peeps,

I am having a problem with the windows areo thingy,

when I put my computer to 'sleep' the areo theme changes to basic on wake up and I can not figure out for the life of me how to stop it .

My graphics drivers are fully updated too the only way I can get it back is by restarting my computer but there are times where that is not possible.

thanks for reading

You might take a look at your power plan settings. You can try to turn off sleep for your harddrives or some other devices and see if it helps.

I think I may know what it is, in my power options I cant set 'require password on wake up' to NO its set to yes and its grayed out, even though I do not have a password on my account.... as when I wake it, I get the logon screen and its after that it goes to basic, but I have no way to bypasing that screen even though IM the only user and I have no password set :S
