    timer

    <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20> I need some help! I want to extend the time it takes to go from my desktop until I have to reenter a password. I have a password protected desktop. Can anyone help me? I am running XP home edition.

    Do you mean the time from last using the computer to the screensaver starting? If so right-click on the desktop and select properties. On the screensaver tab you can select how long until the screensaver starts.

    You can also set the time from the screensaver kicking in to dismissing it without having to enter a password by using TweakUI. Within the Logon > Screensaver section you can specify how many seconds before you are required to enter a password.

    It's the timer that after a while you have to log back on to my desktop. I want to extend the time it takes to go to log in screen from my desktop when I haven't been on the computer for a while. <img src=/S/crossfingers.gif border=0 alt=crossfingers width=17 height=16>

    I think Tony has pointed you in the right direction with TweakUI. It allows you to specify a grace period such that if you dismiss the screen saver during the grace period you will not be prompted for a password (that is close to verbatim from TweakUI). Give it a try and let us know if it did what you need.
