Stop Gnome From Automatically Logout


Hey

I'm trying to stop Gnome from automatically logging out. I find it annoying it does that.

Is there a file I mus configure or anything I must do in order to change this???


Thanks.

What is automatic logout? I've never seen it but it might be a new 'feature'.

If I leave the computer idle it will not completely logout, but it will display a screen asking me for the users password before I can do anything.

You are talking about the screensaver function. Go into your settings menu--find the screensaver--and tell it not to to lock the screen.
