Looking for a way to alter the XPHome default Logon Screen reappears after a period of inactivity.

By default is seems to be set a 5-10min or so, my wife want to know how to alter this setting. We have looked through "Help & Support", can't find what we are after there.

Thanks in anticipation.

John in Mosgiel.

I guess it is the screen-saver you are talking about.
Right click on the desktop, >>properties>>screensaver then put the time you want in the "wait" box.

Cheers, R2

Well, no, we dont have a screensaver, never installed/setup one. If we leave the PC unattended for a short period of time, it reversts back to the Logon screen.

Thanks for the reply.

Have you actually checked to see whether the screensaver is set to "blank"? There is a setting in there: "On resume password protect" that makes it goes back to the logon screen. This could be what you are needing to change.

Didnt associate lack of screen saver with this. Thanks again.... John.
