Windows 7: How does one stop computer from logging off?

How does one stop computer from logging off?

I would like to know how to stop my puter from logging me off when idle. I have disabled all other power options. I am trying to see if the system Watchdog_timeout errors and other BSODs are caused by the power management portion of Windows 7.

The info you are looking for is in the registry.

Since to change those values from the defaults took work on someones part, then did you maybe set your AV software or some other package to logoff after a certain idle period.

Now I think those settings are easily reachable via SECPOL.MSC but I'll go check, although I really suggest you take a look see yourself. You will learn much from what you see there.
