Windows 7: Log in question

Windows7 Home Premium 64 bit SP1
Log in question

Gooday all. I'm not sure this is the right place for this question, so mods feel free to move it.
It's a trifling issue but one I would like to understand and change. On my main PC when I turn it on it goes directly to my home page, no blue screen with account name to click on to get started. Both on my laptop and secondary PC have the blue screen with user icon/s to click on to get started.
All are Windows 7 and due to my location and what I use my computers for don't have log in passwords.
Any help appreciated

Hello James,

Here's a few things to check to see if they may help.

If not already, check the Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer box below.
Log On Automatically at Startup
If not already, enable requiring a password on wakeup below.
Password - Require on Wakeup
If you use a screen saver, then check to make sure you have password protection enabled below.
Screen Saver Password Protection -Enable or Disable
Hope this helps.
