auto-logout in Dropline

How the heck do I disable the auto-logout feature in Dropline Gnome? I'm getting kind of tired of it killing my downloads if I don't get back to it in time.

I have used dropline-installer without this sort of problem, can you be more precise ? You dl packages and it stops ?

I had that before, turned out it was the screensaver or more to the point certain screensavers were causing the xserver to bomb out, I don't have this problem though with the latest dropline and I'm using a different machine now P4 rather than AMD XP, don't know if that was significant. Either way, if you've got the screensaver running you can try opening it up in gnome and kill the daemon via the screensaver "FILE" menu. May help, although may not be your particular problem
