I log out every few minutes. I'm not doing this, the computer or system does this automatically. I'd like to make it stop if at all possible. I can't tell the site to remember me becuase then I can't ever log out at all!

If the problem is most likely with my computer I'll understand but if anyone knows how to make it stop, please tell me!

When it logs you out, are you going into screen saver or is the PC logging you off? Or does Internet Explorer dump you?

The reason you are logging out automatically is because you are timing out. If your browser remains idle (if you stay on one page) for too long then the server will log you out automatically. The only way to stop the automatic log outs is to tell the server to remember you. Then, you can log out manually when you are finished by clicking "log out" option on the right-hand side of the screen in the menu bar that has the control panel, faqs, member links, search, and other options.

I was thinkimg it was timimg put but it does it even if say I'm reading a thread and clicking a new page every couple of minutes. Internet explorer is just kinda kicking me off.

I can't tell the computer to remeber me. I can't log off withput erasing my footprints if the computer remebers me . . . which reminds me I need to check up on something else internet related.

AW is logging me out now... I'll be reading along just fine, jump to another forum and suddenly I have to log in again with user name and password, even though I've checked 'remember me'.

You might try deleting the AW cookies, quitting the browser, and logging back in.

You have to check the Remember Me box, otherwise it will log you out every few minutes. You won't stay logged in forever if you just click Log Out at the end of your session (as infinitus pointed out). It's at the upper right of virtually every page, at the far end of the blue bar with User CP, FAQ, etc.

Note that Remember Me just keeps you logged in. When you log out, all cookies are erased from your computer.

Thanks... I'll try it Monday - it's my work PC that's arguing with me - and let y'all know if that works.

I do have 'Remember Me' checked at work, CC, but it's logging me out anyway.

I solved my other intenet problem. Something about the browser I was using was keeping me from being able to log out completly after clicking remember me. I switched browsers and all is well now :) But thank you!

That did the trick, Lisa! Thanks!

The "Remember Me" checkbox is writing that preference to a cookie; sometimes cookies get a little senile, so it's not a bad idea to just start by deleting the cookie, clearing the cache, quitting the browser, and then logging in again.
