User accounts

I am the only user of my pc so how can I set it up to go straight to my desktop when it resumes from sleep mode? At present I have to select user which is only me - can I just delete myself as user/administrator?

Go into Control Panel > Power Options > Advanced tab > under Options, untick the box next to 'Prompt for password.....resumes from Standby' > Apply.

Now check to see if it happens again. G

Also, if you need to, for first login you can go straight to you account.

Start/Run..type 'control userpasswords2'

Uncheck 'Users must enter a password..' etc
