Notebook logging off all time

By bldsm ·
Hi

I have a Win XP Pro notebook made by HP (good machine) and I have set the power options to never sleep, hibernation is off, because when its being used to do presentations it will not go to sleep. However, after a set period of time it logs me off back to the log-in option screen and I have to re-enter my password to reactivate it.

Can someone please tell me how I fix this annoying problem?

Thanks
Bruce

On the Desktop right click with your Mouse.

The Select Properties.

The Click Screen Saver.

Then you can change the "wait" period and if you want also "un-tick" the option on resume password protect.

go thru the following steps to fix this annoying issue

1. From desktop properties (right click on your desktop and select properties)

select screen saver tab

Increase the wait period ,

You can clear the check box also , so the system will not ask you a log on screen.

ONE THING EVERYONE - its not a screen saver issue - the notebook takes us back to the login screen which appears when the machine is first turned on. No screen saver is turned on at all.

Thanks Bruce

As the others have answered except I would disable the Screen Saver all together if this unit is being used for presentations.

Follow the above listed directions but select "None" as the screen saver that will prevent this from happening again. Unless you are using it from the Battery and then you'll have to set not only the mains power options but th battery options as well.

Someone has set the domain policy to logoff idle sessions is my suggestion.

What kind of domain do you have? Windows? Novell?
