Windows 2003 Server:

Up until a few weeks ago, whenever I logged in to the domain through a workstation as an administrator, I was automatically logged off after five minutes or so of inactivity. Now this automatic logging off, which was evidently a default security feature of Windows 2003 Server, nl olonger works.

Does anyone know why, and how I can turn it back on?

I don't have active directory running on 2003 but give this a try and see what happens,

go into active directory users and computers -> find the administrator user account -> right click then properties -> Sessions Tab -> and look for Idle session limit.  Make sure its set for 5 min and that might do it.

let me know if its doesn't.
