domain login

My laptop is a member of a domain at work. If I take it home I can still log in using my domain credentials. Why is that? I'm not attaching to my work-network but my home network. Is it cause the credentials are being cached? if that's the case, how many time can I log in at home before my access gets denied?

Your credentials are being cached - by default, the last 10 users have their credentials cached.

You can login as many times as you want - your access won't be denied.

Yes the credentials are cached - there is no limit to the number of times you can log0in with the cached credentials.

Windows will by default cache the credentials of up to 10 users - that's 10 different users, each of which can log in using their cached credentials an unlimited number of times,
(of course they have to have logged on normally from the machine at least once in order that the credentials can be cached in the first place)
