"Switch User" window, how do I stop it ?

When my PC is booted it always opens at my "Desktop" :)
BUT when the PC is woken up after "Sleep" it always defaults to "Switch User" window

A DDG search disable "switch user" windows 7 -uac offers no help. I had to eliminate UAC because there was an endless list of useless information.
Obviously a screen shot is not possible

I am the only user and admin.

There are 48,300 results for a "Change User" search in SevenForums.com, including Google ads

I would appreciate some guidance :)

Hi Bawldiggle,

can you check
1) power options - dissable password required on wake
2) Personalize - right click on desktop >> Personalize >> screensaver >>
UNtick - ON resume display logon screen
BIG NOTE you need to do this for ALL the different Themes you use.

Hi John

Silly me.
I was searching for "change user" when I should have searched for "Switch User" ... and bingo ... baarod's tutorial did the trick.

It appears changes are power option specific, I have two custom power options, although I suspect the default Balanced (recommended) appears to include my custom power options too.
