JSI Tip 5665. When you return from a password protected screensaver, you are NOT prompted for your password?

The subject behavior will occur if you start the screen saver manually.

Unless you use sslaunch, or some other program, Windows must start your screensaver for the password protection functionality to be invoked.

NOTE: See tip 1165 » Adjust the Screen Saver lock delay.
