    Sorry if this has been asked before; I couldn't find any help through the search function, & Google led me to a bunch of other forums that only let me see the supposed answer if I created an account with them.

    Yesterday I upgraded to XP service pack 2 (about time, I know). Now, whenever I leave the computer for awhile, I am automatically logged off. I read somewhere that doing a right-click on the desktop, then properties > screen saver would lead me to a box I can uncheck. Thing is, I don't have a screen saver enabled, so the box is already unchecked. I also tried Power Options in the Control Panel, and nothing is set to sleep or shut down or hibernate or anything.

    This wouldn't be such a big deal, if I didn't have thousands of songs that needed syncing to an iPod, which takes hours!
