    Hey Everyone,

    I've been experiencing some problems with my MBP logging me out randomly, It never happens when Im using it, but when I put it down for a while, and come back to it, It requires me to log back in. I do have it set to ask for the password after the screen saver is on. But this is different. It is completely logging me out, and requiring me to log back in. This is especially annoying when I leave something encoding, or downloading, only to come back, and find out that I have to start it from where it last was before the machine logged me out.

    Im thinking I might just have to archive and install. This is getting pretty annoying.

    I've started to have the same problem. Did you ever figure it out?

    In security under System Preferences, Just make sure that the "logout after __ Minutes of inactivity is not checked". Thats what my problem was. I unchecked it and haven't had it do it since.
