    I'm accessing a website that kicks you off after a certain amount of time, I was wondering if anyone has or could create a script so that it won't log me out, I mean, if I go to the bathroom, I have to restart it and go through all ym searches, the website is factiva if that helps

    Copy and paste the site onto a .rtf document (Text Edit) and then paste that link into Safari (or whatever you use) when you come back.

    I don't understand, can you explain a little more? Like when I'm gone, copy the link into a texedit, then when I get back, open a new safari and past it again?, I don't think that will work but I'll try it

    Gone but not forgotten.
    You could drag and drop the URL to the desktop or the Dock and you'd be able to re-enter the website quickly.

    you could try right clicking on the web page. This will bring up the contextual menu. If the right mouse button is programmed to "click and hold", this should keep the window active until you get back from the potty.

    just a thought.
