    Yes! I've run into this problem before but never can remember how to overcome it.
    When this laptop comes out of sleep, instead of going right to Windows Vista, the screen instead comes up with my name and *locked* underneat my name.
    I have to click on the name before I can enter Windows.
    There's a way for the laptop to come out of sleep and open right up to Windows, but can someone inform me as to how I set this machine to do that? I'll appreciate the help. Thanks!

    You need to open the advanced power settings found via the control panel..
    Here's a screenshot so you know what to look for...
