Hello,

I have a Windows XP pro box that locks the keyboard every 60 seconds. Not a screen saver issue. Not a power saving setting.

Where else do I look?

Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

Where does Control Alt and Delete come into this? Before the keyboard locks up, try Control Shift and Escape together to bring up Task Manager. Enlarge it and take a screenshot, post that back here and someone will know what might be causing it.

Also, go Start then Run and in the open box, type cmd /k tasklist /svc (including all the spaces) then hit Enter. Right click anywhere in the black form and go to Select All. Hit Enter to place all the text into your Clipboard then use Control V to paste it into a Notepad document. Save that document then copy and paste it back here as well.
