Is there a way to completely logoff my Windows XP Pro system after X minutes of inactivity? I can do the 'Password Protect On Resume' but wondered if there is a way to completely log off as aposed to just locking the station.

there would be security implications here, and as far as I know you can't do it.

what are these security implications?

i don't think so or i would have mentioned it in the earlier thread.. maybe some one can find a custom software?

to set an automatic logoff you could deceive network administrators about the times you were on the network. No network of mine would ever allow users to do this.

Its a standalone PC, no network
