I have a desktop that I want to keep logged on permanently and keep the monitor on as well (no screen saver) I see in power options where I can set it to never sleep, but where do I change the profile settings to not log me out after a certain period of time?

there's a checkbox inside screensaver options that will take you to the login screen after X time, if it is not unchecked... even if screensaver is set to none.

 

:busy:

 

edit: I really don't get these default settings sometimes. :scratchhead:

I don't understand the question...my system never logs me out, no matter how long I leave it on.  The control for these things would be the power settings in Windows.  "Never" means "never" on my desktops.

check the checkbox on screensaver options then Louis... even if your screensaver is off.
