    I am trying to find a solution that will auto log-off a user on Vista not
    connect to a domain after inactivity. I know that winexit.scr worked on XP
    and I tried it on Vista but it gives me a Registry error on executing and
    setting the settings.

    Also, tried LogonExpert but that doesn't seem to have the option to logoff
    after inactivity - only logoff at specified time.

    Are there any other alternatives out there?

    Thanks in advance...

  2. Can't you just lock the desktop after inactivity?
    i.e. in Screen Saver Settings, tick "On resume display logon screen".

    You can try using ScreenPass

    ScreenPass automatically Logout idle workstation after administrator
    defined idle period has exceeded.

    Works under XP and Vista.
