    XP Pro SP 3. When startup or come out of hibernation,
    on just this one machine, I get the Logon screen and
    must click the User name to get to the desktop. On other
    machines, go right to desktop.

    Cannot find a switch to control this.

    So ... How do I bypass the Logon screen???

    Start\Run\control userpasswords2 and uncheck the box "Users must enter etc etc. Then
    Apply and then back out. Reboot

    Control Panel | Display Properties | Screen Saver | On resume, display
    Welcome Screen.

    or

    Control Panel | Power Options | Advanced | Prompt for password when
    computer resumes.

    Actually I used the run/control userpasswords2 solution
    and it worked a treat!
