Sorry. While I ran Windows NT, 2000 for years I know there is a box to check or uncheck that is all about an "ask for password on resume." All you need to do is find and uncheck that box. I'd look in the control panel, power settings.
And don't forget the old trick of promoting that user to a power or administrator to allow this change then bouncing that account back to the old rights.
Again, sorry that I don't remember exactly where that was but the last Windows 2000 box was replaced the first of this year. No more Windows 2000 machines for me to find a step by step for folk.
Here is my problem:
I am using an older PC for guest use in our B&B lobby, and it runs on Windows 2000 pro (don't want to upgrade to XP as PC is several years old and the 2000 works just fine). I have set up a user profile for guests which does not allow any settings to be changed. But whenever the PC goes in standby mode it comes out with the log in box saying that the PC is locked and only the administrator can unlock it. A guest can't log in with the guest password, this is denied and I have to log off administrator then log in as guest.So several times a day I am being called to unlock the PC.
How can I set this PC so when it comes out of standby it remember which profile it was on previously?
I thought of leaving the PC on all the time with a screen saver, but the fan is a bit noisy at night time.
Hope someone has a solution.
