[:\] Was fiddling with Local Sec Settings. Saw under Local Policies-->Sec Options--> (the switch for) "Automatically Log Off Users when logon time expires" Question: Looking at this particular setting. There should be a way of enabling a time setting for say the Guest account (or etc) an allotted logon time. The end of which forces a log off and need for logging on again. So where's the blooming setting for this? If any? I've been looking around and I can't find anything. I feel like this: [stick] And yes I checked the Properties for Accounts and there's no time allotment property. And this certainly isn't in the Account Lockout as that pertains to password authentication Lockout upon failure. Help please. Hopefully you guys in this mayhem of a computer world will get the usual: [thinking]

I'm more of a Unix guy myself but this might be what you are looking for. [url]http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/gp/564.asp[/url] I believe this applys to when you set hours of opporation for a office or location. Say you only want a certain group of people to log in between the hours of 8-5. Without turning on auto logoff they could work past 5 on the computer. With auto logoff enabled the user would be logged off at 5. Did that make any sense?

[V] yes you're right. I was hopping there was a way to do what i mentioned. This really, as you said, pertains to hours of operation which was set. Interestingly though, it's for a local policy. I'd expect something like this in server. But then again, I can see uses for it in Workgroups. Thanks for the clarification.
