Hello, I have Windows 2000 Pro on a very small home peer to peer network (3
desktops). If someone does not log off the computer they were on, I would
like the computer to log off automatically. I tried setting this for 10
minutes in Security Options. I went to Control Panel > Local Security Policy
required before disconnecting session: It says: Local setting 10 minutes:
Effective setting 10 minutes: If this is the right option, nothing happens.
The computer will stay logged on to the person who last logged on no matter
how long the computer is idle. I am brand new to Windows 2000 Pro and have
went through all the manuals I bought. This was the only reference I could
find. The security options also says: if domain-level policy settings are
defined, they override local policy settings. I thought a peer to peer
network had nothing to do with a domain and that should not mean my network.
But I am too new to really know. Thanks for any help or advice with the log
