my vista premium keeps on going back to the logon screen about a minute if inactive, when active it will do it after a slightly longer period when im using the pc normaly, any sujestions would be helpfull.

Try Control Panel, Mobile PC, Change battery settings, Balanced (or the one with the radial bullet in it), Change plan settings, Put the computer to sleep, increase the time to 15 minutes or more.

OK what are your screensaver settings? Could the screensaver be kicking in quickly and then needing you to log back in afterwards?

Right click on the Desktop, Personalise, Screensaver, Check the Wait time and untick the box On resume, display the logon screen.

So is it still doing it?

Should have added that if so you may have some malware on your PC. I would do a thorough virus and malware scan. Use something like Spywareblaster, Superantispyware, a-squared free together with AVG or Avast.
