on resume, display log on screen, check box grayed out

the check box to disable showing the log on screen is grayed out, and not click-able. thank you for any suggestions that you may have.

Yes. The setting is here:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Control Panel\Desktop]

Delete the "ScreenSaverIsSecure" value.

If this comes back, you may have to use Group Policy Editor.

User Configuration | Administrative Templates | Control Panel | Personalization | Password protect the screensaver.
