Windows 7: Windows 7 User Setup Question

Windows 7 User Setup Question

Is there a way with Win7Pro to either copy your profile over to a 'power user' status OR disable the need for a password after the machine has not been used? Generally after a length of time where a screen saver might kick in, I'm required to re-enter the password which is kind of annoying since nobody else uses the machine. So again, I guess I'd like to either copy my admin profile (desktop) over to another user OR disable the admin password where I'm not prompted for a password if the machine sets idle for 20 minutes. Thanks

I'm guessing its this you're talking about. If so, just select the Yes to a No.
it never happens for me cause i turned off that feature where my monitor goes off.

Open the screen saver settings by right clicking on desktop and select "Personalize - Screen Saver". On the opened Screen Saver Settings, just remove the checkmark from "On Resume Display logon screen" apply OK and close the screen.

While the screensaver is running pressing any key will stop screensaver and will bring back the desktop without asking for any password.

Turn off ScreenSaver as it isn't needed with modern LCD monitors. Use the Win7 background slideshow.

Set no password for wake up.
