Hi,

I am running SBS 2008 and was wondering how can I stop my profile from logging out from a time out and having to re-enter log in details every 10 mins on my Surface Pro 2. On my desktop I have done a fix where it does not log out, but is annoying on my Laptop.

Thanks
Darkner

Also I am running a domain so that the User Account can't be modified.

Thanks

Do you mean that the tablet locks to the screen-saver after 10 minutes of inactivity?

I assume you have already tried to change this in Settings > Personalization > Screen Saver?

There is another place to fix the timeout.

Click the START button and then type USER ACCOUNTS.

On the User Accounts page, click "Reset Security Policies" from the left side menu to bring up this window.  Click "Reset Policies" to remove the timeout.

FYI, if that doesn't work, then there is a DOMAIN Group Policy in place which is causing this to happen.  In this case you will need to modify that policy.

To determine which policy is causing the behavior, run the following command on your tablet in an Administrator Command Prompt:

C:\>gpresult /h report.html

Then open report.html which was created to view the Group Policy report.

There is no need to modify the Domain Group Policy because there are no GP's controlling the screen saver timeout.
