It's a simple question for my Windows 7 desktop at home, and I'm not sure about the correct phrase. A long time ago I decided that particular computer didn't need a password to log in. So that's one thing I never have to type. Whenever I stay away from the computer for a certain amount of time, it switches to a different state. When I go back, there is this 'sort of' login thing in the middle of the screen I have to click. It's probably clicking on the user name. Two questions: what is the correct phrase for that 'state' and how do I turn it off permanently if possible ?
