Can anyone give me sone general steps to copy a local admin profile to
another user.

While logged on as this user the hdd, display cut-off after 20 min. Change
the settings log back on they are back at 20min. Even made this person
member of the local admins, changed settings to never, logged back off, then
back on, again back to 20 min.

Someone suggested copying the local admin profile to this user profile. Just
not sure how to do it.

I wouldn't do it that way. I'd create a new user with admin rights and
copy the existing profile with the problem to that new user.

Read how here:

http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=811151

Important Note: there is a step missing in the article, the new user
MUST have logged in one time BEFORE doing the actual profile copy in
order to create the user's folder structure to copy it to.

Good luck and please post back your results to this thread.
