Strange Request: Set Logon Screen After Display Is Turned Off.

This is a strange question but I don't want a password on my screen but I wouldn't mind a logon screen after my computer display screen is turned off..
It's hard to explain.

But i have my display set to turn off 30 mins of idle and wanted to have a logon welcome page instead of a password page when i move the mouse or come back to my computer.

Is this possible?

How about enabling the screensaver, you can set it to a blank one,

and then checking the box next to On Resume, Display Logon Screen,

Then when you wake it you get this,

No password, just click the icon.

You're welcome. Yes, it will turn off your screen. You can set it to the same 30 min. you have set to turn off your display or less if you want.

Here's a test, I just set the display to turn off at 2 min. and enabled the screensaver to come on at the same 2 min.

At the 2 min. mark you can hear the logoff sound if you haven't disabled that.
