Windows 7: Security logon after screen saver time out/sleep.

Security logon after screen saver time out/sleep.

I have a fingerprint readers installed on my desktop machine and my laptop. On my laptop, anytime it goes to sleep after being idle I have to use my fingerprint to wake it. This is not the case with the desktop. I would like to make it so. I thought the option for secure logon/wake was in the display/sceen saver settings, but I can't seem to find it.

OThe only setting I know of is the checkmark next to the delay timer that says "On resume, display logon screen" (or words to that effect - the exact wording varies slightly depending on your settings). Checking this causes Windows to ask for password - presumably the fingerprint reader in your case.

Edit: The screensaver delay timer, sorry
