You can set a password on a screensaver, or you can set a passowrd when the machine comes out of standby, or any one of several other options.

For the screensaver, right click on your desktop and select properties, select a screensaver of your choice then depending on your computer settings you can opt to return to the Welcome boot up screen where you log in again or you can set a password to deactivate the screensaver.

Or you can open up the Power Saver options in Control Panel and set a password for the PC to wake up from Standby or Hibernation.

There are other methods but these are possibly the easiest.

Have you tried the win2k option: ctrl - alt - del ?

(I assume you have... but always worth checking out.)
