Idle Time-out setting

By MGMMCP ·
I am trying to set the idle time-out on my desktops and cannot find it. This setting would log the user out after a certain time forcing them to log back in. How can this be done in Profession 2000 using an NT 4.0 Server?

In the control Panel/Power Options/Power Schemes tab there is an option for system standby. Change this to what you want. Also under the advanced tab is a check box for prompt for "password when computer goes off standby". This will get you off of the PC and make you use your network log on to get back on the system. I am not sure if it will log you completely out of the network though. Hope this is what you were wanting.

I believe that it is a registry setting, I just don't know the key and value.

You can set the logon time limit in the win NT server. You can use the user manager for domain on the NT server and try search for the user you want to set the time out setting. Then search the time property for login if i am not mistaken.


Hope this help you

I have already set the logon requirements. This would activate if the user has a period of inactivity.

The only way I have found to automatically exit a session in Windows 2000 is to use the Microsot supplied WINEXIT.SCR screensaver. It is only available in the Win2k Resource Kit.

It works like a screen saver and can force applications to quit before logoff. You just set the number of minutes until activation in the display control panel.

The time-out settings are stored in the registry as DWORD values, and are represented in milliseconds. The maximum values are 71,582 minutes, 1,193 hours, or 49.7 days. If an administrator types a value that is larger than the maximum allowed and applies the change, a message is returned that indicates the maximum allowed value.

Entries are rounded to the nearest tenth. For example, if you type "12.67 hours," the value is rounded to 12.7 hours.

If you type only a value, the value is interpreted as an hour value.

Any fractional minute value is rounded up or down to a whole minute value. Therefore, 0.23 minutes equals zero minutes, and 0.50 minutes equals 1 minute.
