I'm just guessing at this, so try it and see.

First, go to Start...Run...and type in "control userpasswords2" (without the quotes) and press Enter. Then, uncheck the box that says "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer". Then, click OK.

Next, go to Start...Control Panel...Display...ScreenSaver tab. The little password box should now say "On resume, display Welcome Screen" (instead of asking for the password).

At least that's how it worked out on my system. If it doesn't work for you, you can easily reset it to the way it was.
