Hi folks
I searched for an answer to this on the net but haven't found anything so forgive me if the answer is obvious. I am running Windows XP at home. It has me set up as administrator and my wife and son as users. Whenever they log-in to their account through the little icon on the front blue screen they stay logged in until they log out, even if they wander off for half an hour. However when I log-in, if I turn my for five minutes it times my session out and returns to the log-in screen. Only a minor quibble I know but just irritating. Any ideas?
TIA
Mike

How much Ram do you have in your computer?

It might be that you have too little Ram and if the other accounts are left turned on it might log you off. Try exiting their accounts and then go into yours after both of theirs is closed out.

Open you account & see what the Power Options in Control Panel are set at.
You might want to set them to NEVER.
