How to prevent PC from logging off

We have a CCTV system on the LAN and are running it through a PC. The nuisance bit is that the PC keeps logging off after after a given amount of time.
We want the screens on and viewable constantly and although I have set the Exchange GPO to enable maximum performance, the pc still keeps logging off after 15 minutes.

I have set a power plan the preferences (GPME) using item level targetting and still it periodically goes to logon screen. Does anyone know of a way to make sure the machine displays stay on permanently?

OK, now I didn't quite get it from your post - under Control Panel-->System and Security-->Power Options - does your power plan include "Sleep" after X minutes?

I have already been into he control panel on the client machine and adjusted the power settings accordingly. Basically I have maximized the performance with every setting I can see.

However, I just went into the power plan on the GPO perference and adjusted the hybrid power settings and so far the machine has stayed on for nearly one hour. Therefore I might have cured the problem.


Will let you know how it goes.
