When I use the hibernate feature on my windows vista laptop, I have to go through an additional step to turn my computer back on. It first goes to a screen and I have to click on my user name. I don’t have to enter a password or anything. How do I turn that feature off? Thanks.
Searching from a Microsoft site leads to a link with these instructions. It involves running the command netplwiz at the command prompt. This looks more like a procedure to set up a default user, so I’m not sure how it’ll work if you’re the only user and never set a password to begin with. Also, I don’t know how Vista treats logging in initially versus coming out of hibernation. I know I’m pretty grumpy when I come out of hibernation. There are also some links to sites that hint that there may be a way to change the settings w/o going to a command line command. Answer Person certainly isn’t going to test any of this on the AP computer and risk a lot of smoke and flames. And anyway, the library hasn’t provided me with Vista yet.
