    After countless hours of searching I've found no answer...

    How does one disable the auto-logoff in vista?! I've search high and
    low in display settings, power management, group policies, and have also
    tried numerous 'net' commands in cmd with no luck. I use logmein from
    another computer in my home and watch movies to a computer connected to
    my tv. However, im getting VERY frustrated at how I must come back to my
    computer to have to log back in through logmein since after 15-30 mins
    the stupid thing keeps logging off! I can't watch a full movie without
    atleast getting up 4-5 times during it and moving the mouse around to
    prevent the idle auto-logoff or having to log back in...ANY HELP?!

    I know its a vista problem as it does it regardless of logmein. Vista
    logs me out and I have to click the picture to log back in. I see many
    people have to enter there logon password to get back into windows but
    this doesnt occur with me as I have auto-logon turned on

    Logmein does in fact log me out but thats not what im concerned about.
    I would only have to go back to my computer and use logmein if I get
    logged out of windows and have to log back in or...I have to pause the
    movie in windows media player :)
