    I mean the time from when you log and when you get logged off due to inactivity I ask this because I loose connection.

    Doesn't sound like a Windows XP kind'a thing. Sounds like your ISP has you on a timer (my ISP is 5.0 hours EXACTLY).

    I've searched the properties for my internet conneciton and did not find a timer.

    Some software forces a system shutdown after so much time or at a specific time (i.e. TweakXP permits this setting.)

    I don't know of any direct setting in Windows XP that forces a shut down after X-amount of time though.

    Try looking in your browser at Tools > Internet Options > Connections > Settings > Advanced and see if you have a time setting you would want to change. Is that what you mean?

    I think you are missunderstanding what I am trying to do.
    When you log onto xp you get the logon screen with different users. If I leave my pc for a short time, no longer than 5 minutes I get kicked back out to the logon screen with all the different users again and have to login again from there. I would just like to know if it is possible to lengthen the time from logon to when you get logged out. I hope this is a bit clearer.

    Thx
    Woody

    Left click on the desktop, goto ScreenSaver tab, make sure that the checkmark next to "resume at windows welcome screen" is not checked..
