I have set up only one limited account, and am using the "System" Adminstrator account. I do not have a "user" administrator account.
I can acess the system adminstrator via safe mode. I found out how to remove the "user" admisntrator account from this website
and by doing (taken from that website)
Follow these steps to rename the Administrator account in Windows XP Home:
1.Press [Windows]R to access the Run dialog box.
2.In the Open text box, type Control userpasswords2 and click OK to access the User Accounts dialog box.
3.Select the Administrator Account from the list and click the Properties button.
4.In the User Name text box, type a new name, and click OK.
So..all is working ok right now. On my Limited account, i cannot adjust the power propteries (Hibernate, stand-by, turn off mointor etc)
Here is a screen shot from the limited account
I want to uncheck this feature, since i want to boot straight into the account without going to the startup menu
When i try that i get this message:
From what i see on the system adminstrator account there are no options as well
So...without a "user" adminstrator account, can i adjust the Power properties? Mainly the Hibernate and stand-by times?
