I recently created a new user account on my home pc. Since then my computer
appears to automatically logoff after about 60 seconds of inactivity. How do
I change this? It is happening on both accounts.

Hi John,

Go into Control Panel - Power Options and investigate the Power
Schemes and Advanced tab.
The settings should be obvious.

Thanks Bert...I found that the screensaver settings were causing the problem.
Even though I have it set to "None" the wait and and "On resume..." setting
was being used.
