Windows Xp logs me off after 10 minutes when idle,
watching a movie, or listening to music. It does NOT log
me off when I am constantly using my mouse and keyboard.

So how do I prevent windows from logging me off. This only
occured after SP2 was installed.

Note My screen saver is set to none (meaning i do not have
one)

My power settings is set to never turn off

And my security setting: force logoff is set to disable.

I have no clue what else it could be.
 
 
 

1. Page kick off if idle more than 10 minutes

2. Auto log-off after 10 minutes - How do I disable?

About a week ago, a very irritating behaviour started on my Vista
Ultimate machine at home:

If left alone for approx 5 - 10 minutes, the machine makes a 'pinging'
sound and displays the "Welcome" screen with a little icon displaying
my Vista username.

In order to continue with what I was doing, I have to click the little
icon, listen to a pinging sound and wait for a few seconds while the
machine removes the welcome screen and displays the desktop as I left
it.

I do NOT want this behaviour and I have searched in vain for how to
turn it off... Since I did not consciously turn it ON, I have no idea
where to look!

I DO want to screen blacked out after a couple of hours inactivity -
but this pointless "logout" is only infuriating.

Does anyone know where I can find the settings for this?
