I have Win XP running on a dell desktop. Once I have fully booted up
and have the desktop showing, if I do not use the key board or mouse
for 5 minutes, Windows automatically takes me to a log on screen where
I have to click on my user name again. (I have the computer set up for
3 users.). Is there a way to stop this automatic "log off" or at least
to increase the time before it automatically logs off? Thx

Hi,

Right click the desktop, select properties. Go to the screensaver tab.
Either change the timeout, or disable the option for "On resume, display
Welcome screen".
