vista logs me out!
my power settings are so that the screen shuts off every minute, and the
computer is set to never go to sleep. 3 eeks ago, after having this setting
for nearly 3 months, vista starts to turn off the monitor than it logs me
off-not a huge deal really-but having to put my password in every single time
just builds headaches. i don't want to remove the password either, i just
don't want to be logged out anymore! please help!

thanks for the help

Hi, sbmann ... I can understand how you feel ... I have posted stuff and saw
no response and it made me wonder if everyone had blocked me out/set me to
ignore ... (g)

I didn't know the answer to your problem so I didn't post anything ... still
don't know how to fix it but will see what I can find out ...

Re: vista logs me out!
OK ... back from supper ... now:

If you are running Vista, go in to Control Panel --> Personalization -->
Screen Saver

Or, you can right-click on the Desktop and choose Personalize ... that will
take you to the Personalization Control Panel quickly.

Make sure that "On resume, display logon screen" is not checked. If it is,
uncheck it. This setting makes you enter your password again every time the
screen saver kicks in.

Next, in the same Screen Saver Settings screen, click on "Change power
settings" down near the bottom left (you can also reach this through Control
Panel --> Hardware and Sound --> Power Options.)

There are several settings on the left that you should check to make sure
they are set the way you wish ...

Sometimes, when we receive updates from Microsoft, settings like these can
end up being changed as a result of the new updates. This has happened to me
many times over the years. I am not saying that this is what caused the
desired behavior on your machine to change, only that it is a possibility.

If all of these settings are the way you want ... and you find "On resume,
display logon screen" is NOT checked but this behavior is still happening,
then there are two other places to look: 1) group/local policy; and 2) the
registry. Working with admin tools or editing the registry are things that
need care in the doing of them.

If setting things the way you want them in Personalization and Power Options
doesn't fix the problem, please let us know and we can see what we can find
from there.

Short in the dark... Your power settings changed and the computer is
going to sleep?

Failing that, screen saver settings are set to lock workstation.

Beyond that, no guesses.
