Need to turn off session time out for user account

I have 4 pc's in a manufacturing plant all XP and all set up in a workgroup. The owner wants the users to login once in the morning and then it should stay logged in all day. Currently it loggs out if not being used after a set amount of time by default. How do i set it to stay logged in until they tell it to log out. Not that it matters but any of the 15-20 people on the floor should be able to go to any of the 4 machines and do thier thing as they are all identicle.

Is it actually logging them out, or just prompting for a password after the screen saver has come on.  Make sure "On Resume, Password Protect" option on the Screen Saver tab is not checked.

Click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Power Options. On the Advanced tab, click to clear the Prompt for password when computer resumes from standby check box, and then click OK.
