    The log in process

    Hi Guys

    I have an HP 64 bit laptop, and each time i open up, I have to clear a print/screen type of landscape (very nice) then I have to enter a pin.

    I am the only person who uses laptop and has access to it, so can I remove need to log in.

    Also, if I leave it unattended for a short while, even with laptop open, it asks me to log in again, yet I have not knowingly closed down, maybe gone to make a cuppa.

    Appreciate any help
