I don't understand this, if I don't use this website for a few weeks it makes me sign in even though I have it set to remember my password. I have other passwords from other websites where I don't have to do this. It must be a malfunction within this website somewhere. I am using windows vista wih IE 8.0 if this means anything. If this would happen on my other websites I would suspect a setting some where within my browser but this is the only place it happens. Is there some one that know why this keeps happening?

Same thing happens to me at times...I can't tell you why, but I always assume that something has been damaged (cookie) and I just sign in again. The cookies on your system are what facilitate access to a given website, storing passwords and other data. Signing in again creates new cookies, facilitating access...IME.

Thanks, Hamluis. I guess I will just have to keep signing in when I don't use his website for a few day. I appreciate you reply.

I have been using IE9(upgraded from IE8) and seems to be more stable pertaining to this kind of problem. Might wanna try the latest IE version as a suggestion.
