    How to tweek time until auto Logoff


    How do you change the time when you computer auto logsoff. I've tried searching in the screensaver and in the power opitons, but no luck, even Google doesn't have the answer.

    Please help!

    From what I have read, and tried, this is known issue that MS need to address.

    I had the same problem. Check to make sure that the timer box next to the Screensaver option isn't checked - even if you don't have the Screensaver option engaged. If it is checked, uncheck it. This fixed my problem. Not sure how, but it did.
