    For about a week now, my computer will keep logging me off if I don't do anything active for more than maybe 5 minutes, it's frustrating. I'll be booted randomly as well. Then today I tried to log in and it took about 3 or 4 tries, as it kept accepting it, and then took me back to the log in screan.

    What's the deal?

    It wants you to go outside and play with the other children.

    Every single time I log in. It suffers from short term memory loss.

    Then AnnoyingSilence is probably the person you need to be talking to about this issue.

    logged off from windows? (either black screen restart or just back to the "users" screen?)

    if so, i thnk it's prly more than anyone here can help you with...

    (if you mean logged off from SHH then it's prlly just an auto-reload + cookie thing or something like that...but i still have no idea how to fix it :o)

    maybe your browser isn't allowing SHH to save cookies on your machine...what do your privacy settings look like in Internet Options?

    You gotta change your privacy settings.
    It will happen to you if you use Netscape broswer and stuff like that.
    IE wont log you off, so you gotta change your cookie settings.

    If you are on IE and you have this problem, your s*** outta luck.

    Start using a Mozilla based browser, or possibly Opera.
    IE is ruining your Windows machine.
