How can I configure my screen saver so that it requires my password to turns it off?
Step 1. Right-click anywhere on the desktop, and click on Personalize (In Windows XP, select Properties).
Step 2. At the bottom of the Personalization window, click on the Screen Saver button.
Step 3. If you do not already use a screen saver, select a type of screen saver.
Step 4. Choose the number of minutes you want to go by with no computer activity before the screen saver turns on.
Note: For security reasons, 10 Minutes is the standard campus timeout
Step 5. Check the box "On resume, display logon screen" to enable password protection.
