Auto Sign Out is too Quick IE8 & XP

Think the title says it. I only have to leave the machine for a few minutes & I get automatically signed out. As I have a sign in password it is getting a tad boring having to re enter. How can I extend the time before auto sign out? Note:- If I go into Control Panel/Display/Monitor Power/Sceensaver the "System Standby" is set to 20 minutes, but I have to re log in long before that period of time

When you set the 20 minute delay are you clicking on apply and ok?

Just clicking on OK, apply is not there.

Just checked it, even though the Control Panel Monitor Power is set for 20 minutes, I am having to log in with password after about 10 minutes. Am I missing something?

Is your power saving set to "never" for standby

Try Display Properties - Screen Saver - and uncheck "On resume, display Welcome screen".

Do you have a screensaver set up?

System Standby set to 20 minutes, Turn off Monitor 15 minutes, Turn off Hard Disc Never. Screen Saver set to "Yes" On Resume question is Checked

I can't do the "Uncheck" trial bit for a couple of days.

Unchecking the "On resume, display Welcome screen"seems to have worked thanks for the help.
