    I have unchecked hibernation, I have ensured that standby is not the option in power management, I have cursed and shouted. Nevertheless, my Acer 1350 - when left untouched for a short time - goes (not to town) but to the logon screen.
    How in the world do I prevent this situation from happening? I want to keep staying in the application picture.

    That's an interesting problem. :eek:

    Do you have all the power options settings set to "Always On" and "Never"(which it should be)? (y)

    If all of your power settings in control are as they should be, then you might have to disable ACPM in bios. Just a thought.....

    Is your screensaver enabled? If so, go into your display properties, screen saver tab, and uncheck on resume display welcome screen

    Besides not using the advanced power management options(i.e. hibernate, suspend, standby, etc.), I keep the screensaver set to "None". (y)
