    Is there an automatic log out? I've not been online for quite some time now but my account is still logged in. It would be nice to have an automatic log out after 30 min or so.

    Thanks for posting this lipton. With our current settings, you should have been automatically logged out after 15 minutes. We'll have to figure out why this evidently didn't happen in your case.

    I didn't get logged out after about about 60 minutes of idle time. Personally, I like it that way -- I would not want to be logging in frequently. Isn't this what the "keep me logged in" checkbox is for?

    I like this keep me logged on feature.

    The challenge is the rare occasion when I use another public computer (eg in the lounge and forget to log off )

    Yep. I prefer not being logged out when I have the box checked to not log me out.

    Excellent points made by the Canadians [​IMG]

    lipton, I made the classic mistake of assuming you hadn't checked the "stay logged in" box when you logged in. If you did, then that explains it. You might try logging out and back in, being sure not to check that box, and see if you still aren't logged out automatically. Then we will know more definitively whether or not this is a bug.

    Thanks all.

    I did not click on that button due to I'm at work. I did click on that button at home on my laptop, but not on this computer.
