    SBS 2003.

    When I log in remote desktop / or even on the server itself, the login times out after 10 minutes of inactivity. I have to ctl alt del to log back in.

    I want to turn that feature off, no time limit on inactivity.

    I had set it once but it has since been set to default and I can't find where I did it.

    Thanks.

    Are you it is not just the screensaver kicking and you have it set to require a password to resume?

    No, it's the windows login box coming up asking me to press ctl alt del to login again.

    Sounds like Terminal Server configuration is set to log you out after 10 minutes of inactivity.

    cheers, Paul

    Double check your screensaver settings - one of the options on the screensaver is to require you to log back in after it kicks in. I see that behavior on most SBS2003 systems I work with.
