    what do you mean by logout?

    you will really need to explain the problem in more detail..

    Is it just a screen saver thats coming on, or the computer is going into standby?

    Which version of redhat?

    Which GUI do you login to / use? Gnome / KDE / Other ?

    Ta,

    Jason

    Spontaneous Logout Details

    I am using RedHat 7.1 (SeaWolf)
    on a machine with a 1G Pentium III.
    With the Gnome GUI. I like to work
    with 3 or 4 desktops open simultaneously, but when I come back from a lengthy break, a few hours or overnight, the screen says I need to login. When I do, all my desktops have vanished. Rather a nuisance.
