Having to re- log into Windows Xp

  Gman 18:54 10 Aug 2003

I have Windows Xp pro. When I leave my Pc for a period logged into my account but with out typing or moving the mouse it will go to the log in screen forcing me to re enter my password although it is not actually logged out because it says x number of programs running. As soon as I enter my password it goes back to whatever I was last doing.
Is there a setting to disable this or at least extend the time it waits?

Right click an empty part of your Desktop. Select Properties, Screensaver. From there you can extend the Screensaver and ultimately the logout time and also deselect the (by unticking) 'on resume display welcome screen'.
