Hello,

Since I created a new user on my XP (SP2), I have the following problem:

If an open session stays "inactive" (means no keyboard or mouse action)
during some minutes, the screen switch automatically to the "welcome
users" blue window which asks which user wants to connect.

I want to deactivate this automatic switch. Indeed, when I'm listening
music, for instance, I like to see the screen of my session with name of
the songs and images, ...
The music continues to play when it has switched to the blue "welcome
users" screen but I want to stay with my session screen.

Please how to deactivate this automatic switch ????

Thanks in advance for your help

Thomas

Go to the Display applet in Control Panel and the screensaver tab.
Uncheck the bit about using the Welcome screen when returning from the
screensaver mode.

This option is inactive and in "gray"... moreover it is already
unchecked. I do not use any screensaver...
