    I log in every time I use the site - I dont tick the 'keep me logged in box' prefering to enter my details each time i visit.

    However, if I dont use the pc for maybe 10 mins while being logged in it logs me off automatically :faint:

    Which to be fair is just plain annoying!!

    Any ideas anyone?

    I use internet explorer - latest version whatever that is. I will start ticking the remember me box 0 often i log on at work and its usually a different terminal everytime so I have never bothered.

    Will let you know if its makes any difference, thanks for getting back to me.

    Even with the remember me box ticked Olly, the system will think you have logged off or closed the window after 10 minutes or so of inactivity, which can be annoying, as it doesn't remember which posts you didn't read when you come back after a 10 minute phone call.

    Yes thats exactly the problem I have - I'm surprised no one has mentioned it before (?) tbh its is very annoying :banghead:

    Can it be fixed? None of the other forums I use do it.
