yes there is check the user preferences for your account and it should give you a box to tick

From a security perspective, XP Pro should prompt for your password when coming off standby or hibernation mode. But if your workstation is at home or in a very secured location, to disable this important security feature:

* Start the Power Options Control Panel applet
o Start
o Control Panel
o Power Options
* Select the Advanced tab.
* Uncheck the Prompt for password when computer goes off standby check box.
* Click OK.

I couldn't find it at first cos stupid windows decided it was more logical to put it in the 'Power Options' section rather than 'User Accounts' section but it all works now. Thank you Wave.
