Hello, I have an underage son that I have parental controls set up on his login account. Once in awhile my husband will forget to logoff the admin account and then my son will get on the computer and be able to surf anywhere he wants to. I need a way to set up the admin account to logoff to a login screen after the admin account sits idle for lets say 15 min just like on a work computer but I am not running a server I just have a single home pc running vista home premium version 6 sp2

Have your husband setup a screen saver to activate after so many minutes of idle time for his logon, and require password to get logged back on.
