I have an older laptop we keep in the kitchen for quick references to the web. It it set up to use a password login. When I recently downloaded XP service pack 2, it started to require login after it turns the monitor and hard drive off to save power. I can't seem to find out how to get it back to normal (not require another login).

I think the setting you're looking for is under "control panel", "power options", on the "advanced" tab.

Uncheck the block "Prompt for password when computer resumes from standby".
