    Certain program on my system example, safari, firefox, itunes and xtorrent
    will try and quit and close the program if im away from the system for more than 5 minutes.
    It has only started since i have put a password on my account, any ideas on how to stop this as its pretty annoying

    Check System Preferences > Security > General and see if Log out after y minutes of inactivity is checked and set to a low value.
