Idle logout - LogMeIn software breaks this?

Recommended Posts


I've adapted a script from the forums to log out users after being idle for a period of time. This works as expected when using on a PC directly, even when the user has locked the PC and walked away. But if the user was remotely accessing the PC with LogMeIn free, and kills the browser window, it locks the PC (as expected), but does not ever log out - unlike if locked locally...

Any ideas? This is on WinXP SP3 with the latest LogMeIn Free 2.x...

Microsoft has a screensaver that will log out the PC when it comes up. (Going off of memory here - you will have to search for it.)

Hmmm... Does that override a locked computer though?
