    Automatically Switch User After inactivity

    Dear all,

    I am trying in to find a way to configure GPO to get automatic user switch after inactivity.

    I have two users, one protected by password on the other hand I have a second user with no password. I would like to create a task to force PC once the user with password is idle for x minutes, this is automatically logoff and it is login the non protected user with no user action.

    Would you know if there is a way to get this configuration in windows?

    Thanks in advance
    Best regards

    And 'switch user' option at login screen does not suffice? After setting screen saver settings to require login screen after time out of course.

    Just because you don't know where you are going doesn't mean any road will get you there.

    The only way I can see to do that is set up one user to auto logon. The other user then needs a program that runs at screen save that re-starts Windows - and loses changes.

    cheers, Paul
