I just purchased this laptop and am working on tailoring it (taking out some of the bloat that came with it.) But I'm a novice and I have no idea what terminology to search for in help. I don't like having to click on the "Locked" screen each time it goes down for a bit. Can anyone tell me how to disable it? Thanx!

The Manual is the first port of call.

Power Management - Control Panel / Power Options, generally deals with how a laptop reacts, according to your settings. You can turn off the suspend/hibernate features, if you wish.

You may also have an AsusSmartLogin utility running, if so, check settings there.
If not installed/running and it is available as an option under All Programs (Asus), probably best NOT to activate it, otherwise you may just compound the annoyances.

Input welcomed from Asus users; above is basic info, except for Login utility - info through Google search.

Nice spec.

Hi Pete. I don't know how I missed this reply (although I suspect I was in Texas for a funeral). I am SO happy to [potentially] be able to disable that screen! I tried through the User Account controls to no avail. It's very annoying. When my computer goes to sleep I have to wake it up by first hitting the start button, then wait for it to "Resume Windows" and then click the User Account window to be able to finally get in. Grrrrrr...........

Thanx again!
