    Re: keeps logging out by itself

    Bump bump!

    Anyone ever get any solutions to this? I haven't upgraded to 10.04 yet on my laptop (still backing up various data, waiting to get a copy of Windows 7 to put on it before for dual boot purposes). I had it crash out on me again while doing work. Very, very annoying.

    Question Re: keeps logging out by itself

    I tried the System > Preferences > Power and > Screensaver and tried the only two things that looked like they might help. I added a screensaver - hadn't done so yet - and in the Power section I unchecked the item for "spin down disk whenever possible." This is a desktop machine so I hadn't paid too much attention to the power settings before.

    I know it's scientifically inaccurate to try changing two things at once but I'm already having an annoying day and I don't want any sass from my computer. I'll be away from the machine for a while so I can report back if anything changed; if it did, feel free to experiment with only one of my changes.

    Smile Re: keeps logging out by itself

    Something obviously worked. I left this computer for so long that it had put itself on standbuy, but it hadn't logged me out. I'm guessing it was the "hard drive" option in System > Preferences > Power. Whatever it was, it was great not to face that log-in screen again.

    I'm getting this problem on the new version. I see this thread is very old, anyone know a solution yet?
