Why does user logon screen come up after standby mode?

From a security perspective, XP Pro should prompt for your password when coming
off standby or hibernation mode. But if your workstation is at home or in a very
secured location, to disable this important security feature:

  • Start the Power Options Control Panel applet

    • Start
    • Control Panel
    • Power Options

  • Select the Advanced tab.
  • Uncheck the Prompt for password when computer goes off
    check box.
  • Click OK.
