Getting logged off too often.

Hello,
I have my computer set up to automatically log off of all websites everytime I click off of it and I have to re-log in everytime I return. On ALL the other sites I use I can leave the site open in my window bar {?} along the bottom of my screen and I stay logged in.
But, here on ADV I get logged of almost everytime I click to a different window or if the screen goes asleep it logs me off. Usually it even logs me off while I am reading some longer pages and threads or while I am typing a longer thread and I have to log back in to finish posting a reply.

Is there something in my set up that has changed that I need to address to slow down the auto log off time?

I do not think it has anything to do with my security settings because this does not happen on other regularly visited sites.

Thanks for any help.

I think this is an automatic feature that Baldy has built-in. Basically logs you off if you haven't clicked on anything for awhile. Not sure what the time limit is but seems to be somewhere around 15 minutes?

Thanx for the reply, Is there anyway to extend the time?

I get knocked off while I am typing new threads or even replys alot, I type slow.

You can get a widget that looks like a thumb drive that continually moves the cursor 1 pixel back and forth. It just plugs in a USB port.

ttpete,
Thanks for the idea. I will look into that.
I am not sure if that will fix it or not though. I stay logged on as long as I am clicking in and out of different thread or writing short posts, but just scrolling and moving my cursor manually does not seem to prevent the knock off. But I will try to manuall see if that helps. I do know that typing does not change it.
