I c ur problem. I guess u need to check the screen saver settings of ur user account. uncheck the box next to the text which reads "On resum, password protect".Wen switching between users the screen saver appears for the first user.And wen the first user swithches with second or third user then the system fist asks for a auser account password and second the screen saver password or maybe vice versa.
First....... here's my system info:

Now for the annoyance:
When switching from one user to another (not logging off) I always have to type in my password twice. In other words I type it once and then the system attempts to switch to my user settings however never makes it. The screen eventually goes blank or else my screensaver kicks in. I move my mouse or hit a key and then end up back at the "select user" page. I then re-enter my password and all works properly. It's not really a big problem........ more of an annoyance however I've been living with it for quite a while now and decided to see if anyone here might know a simple trick for me to fix it.
Thanks for your time.
