Windows gives the security option to display the Welcome Screen, which will require username and password (if the login requires a password). This extra bit of security can be useful if you want to keep unauthorized individuals off of your machine. On the other hand, it can be an irritation if there is no possibility of anyone messing with your machine.
The toggle for this behavior is in Display Properties
.Right Click on your Desktop > Click Properties > Pick Screen Saver Tab
On this panel there is a checkbox On resume, display Welcome screen
. Check this box to select the desired behavior.
