Fast User Switching is a very complicated procedure for the system to follow. It's sort of like Standby - but with the computer remaining on.
So, first off, here's some info on how it works: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/294737/en-us
Next comes the questions...Are you using any sort of device that isn't supported by Fast User Switching? The most common one that comes to mind is the iPod. If so, you'll have choose between the device and Fast User Switching (I'm gonna call it FUS from now on!).
Next, check your registry to see if it's enabled: http://www.winguides.com/registry/display.php/973/
Next, here's a known issue with FUS and the Welcome Screen: http://www.exodus-dev.com/techtips/windows...in_problems.htm
And here's a tweak to solve the issue above: http://windowsxp.mvps.org/slowswitch.htm
This link makes reference to FUS not working when you've enabled offline files: http://techrepublic.com.com/5208-11196-0.h...threadID=196774
Finally, here's some more detailed info about FUS from MSDN: http://windowssdk.msdn.microsoft.com/en-us...y/ms713343.aspx
