Do you mean from Hibernate or Standby, or from the screensaver?

I never use hibernate or standby because I felt they were always problematical with Windows OS. I don't think they ever got it quite right.

If that's what you're using, then I would switch to a simple screensaver, set it without the option to "On resume, password protect", then turn off the screen whenever you leave the computer. Then when you return all you have to do is turn the screen back on and move the mouse or press a key.
