How to turn off user auto log-off in XP Pro?

Can anyone explain how to turn off this feature or adjust the log-out timer to a longer period than the pre-set factory limit?

I have some customers who are going bonkers at having to login every 15 minutes or so.

darkmoebius,

Thank you for using the Dell Community Forum.

Well, the only place that I can think of is to go into the screen saver area and you should see a place to add more minutes before the screen saver kicks in. Set it to 30 minutes maybe.

An odd way for MS to handle security...

Thanks for the tip, I'll give a try in a few minutes.

Doesn't really allow for the situation where someone is still sitting at their desk.
