How to disable automatic login 10.04 everytime computer awakens?

I am new to ubuntu 10.04. My computer is left on all the time. My computer's screensaver comes on 10 minutes after last keystroke. Which is fine. However, when I return to use the computer and disengage the screensaver, ubuntu ALWAYS requires my password to continue. How do I stop ubuntu from asking me my password everytime I wake my computer up?

Go to System->Preferences->Screensaver

I believe you want to untick the "Lock screen when screensaver is active"
