Alrite here is my problem: When im using my Windows Xp computer, say i use my computer, then i jsut leave it there. The monitor will turn off and the monitor on button will turn orange. When i turn the monitor back on and move the mouse the login screen is on the screen. I try to log in to a different account then i was originally logged into (ie: i was logged into account 'x' and now i try to log into account 'y') i used to be able to we logged onto mutliple accounts at a time. Now i cant. When i try to log into account 'y' it starts to log in, (my desktop pictures flashes) then it comes back to the login screen. I can then restart my computer and login to 'y' but restarting becomes very annoying. What can i do to fix this problem?? Help appreciated!!


What does the Fox say?

Can You use the Switch User Feature to switch to the account before the screen saver comes up?

There is a possibility that there is no enough memory available to complete the login. How much disk space is free on your hard drive, and how much RAM do you have?

What programs are set to run, perhaps one is conflicting, or crashing.
