Windows 7: Laptop Security

Laptop Security

I have recently moved from Windows Vista to Windows 7 Home Premium and am extremely dissappointed to find that I am no longer able to request the software to display the 'Log On' screen when re-starting my laptop, having previously closed down using either the 'Hibernate' or 'Sleep' command. Am I doing something wrong or have Microsoft (wrongly) omitted this option from the Windows 7 programme ?

Hiya pal and welcome to the forums.
If you right click on the desktop then click "personalize", click on "screensaver", then "change power settings" you should get the option showed in the pic. This is where you setup the password option. Hope this helps
