After several issues on my work PC and listening to "our" great tech support its even worse. I will get to that problem later but for now what ever they did has my XP pro making me log back on if it sits idle for a few minutes. I have searched here and tried the help on my pc but cannot find the answer. How do I keep it from having it log off after just a few minutes?

Check your screensaver properties to see if the box is checked for "On resume, display welcome screen". And in screensaver properties under Power Options Properties > Advanced, see if the box is check for "Prompt for password when computer resumes from standy".

Where I work, IT sets the screensaver to lock the computer after 20 minutes and requires the user to log on again. Anything less than 20 minutes is unreasonable though if that is what your IT is doing.

I missed the first part about displaying the welcome screen when resumed, this fixed the problem.

Thanks
