User Accounts and Settings Question

I've decided to create a user account (XP home ed.) for my wife on this computer. NBD, except an albeit minor annoyance: everytime I'm working and the Screen saver comes on I must choose my account again to proceed, again not a huge hassle, but is there a setting I can change to bypass this prompt?

Anyone?

Ok...I suppose there are greater computing hassles to endure. Just thought I'd put it out there.

Thanks!

Right click on the desktop, select properties, select screen saver, uncheck show welcome screen.

...yeah, I happened upon that option after posting. Thank you nonetheless! Now what about sharing files between the two user accounts?

In My Computer, right click on the drive you want to share, select sharing. Follow the link to set up sharing.

Instead of a screen saver, I turn the monitor off when I'm done.
