    on my mba 11", it's done it 5 times or so, so far, and ummm... I 'd hate to send my mba (yet again) to service, and I really have no clue why this happens...and no it's not as simple (of course) as having a look at security settings...

    Any help most welcome, because there's such a sinking feeling to be logged out mid work and lose work as well as having everything close down on you...:(

    I've been having the same problem recently, although I think in my situation, it's mostly related to doing more intensive tasks on my 2007 MBP. It's mostly happened while watching a DVD/Hulu full-screen.

    Do you think yours could be stress-related too?

    I should think so, now that you got me thinking along these lines, because most recently it happened with parallels on. I can't remember what I was doing the other times. Having said that a chrome + safari (with few tabs) + chrome on parallels and a vid playing isn't what I would call stress...

    ...it's really disconcerting though, and from my preliminary online research on this, I can't seem to find a root cause... that's what worries me, that in this day and age, I might have to live with the fear of getting logged out mid work, and I wouldn't want that of course...

    mine has occasionally logged out for no reason

    quite irritating when I have my computer as my alarm clock

    hadn't thought of that...and I too use it as an alarm clock occasionally, boy that sucks even more than losing some work done...
