Click on "Protect your files with a screen saver password"
To protect your files by using a screen saver password
1. Open Display in Control Panel.
2. On the Screen Saver tab under Screen saver, click a screen saver.
3. Select the On resume, password protect check box.
If Fast User Switching is turned on, select the On resume, display Welcome
screen check box.
-- To open Display, click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and
then double-click Display.
-- Selecting the On Resume, password protect check box will lock your
computer when the screen saver is activated. When you begin working again
you will be prompted to type your password to unlock it.
-- Your screen saver password is the same as your logon password. If you do
not use a password to log on, you cannot set a screen saver password.
-- Fast User Switching is only available for stand-alone computers and users
in a workgroup. It is not available if your computer is part of a network
