Is this normal?

    When I open a page in Windows 7 Home premium and leave it inactive for a
    short space of time it closes of its own accord and displays the words
    'Emrys Davies Locked' and 'Switch User', together with a small icon which,
    if clicked, opens the window again. I sense that this normal, but I would
    appreciate clarification.

    It now appears to me that any intermittent movement of the mouse cursor
    stops the window closing abruptly, so it may be that I have answered my own
    question.

    Check your screensaver timeout and make sure it's not set to an
    extremely low value.

    Thanks for that. It was on one minute and I have changed it to three
    minutes. Easy now that I know that the change is possible.

    I would have recommended 45-60 minutes, but it sounds like you've
    found a value that works for you.

    He's using it as an egg timer.

    Three minutes seems pretty short to me as well...

    Thanks everyone. 45 minutes it is. This was completely new to me having
    only had my brand new HP Pavilion for a few days and not having set eyes on
    Win7 or WLM before.

    Hey don't worry:) Most of us are using Win7 and WLM for the first time:)

    You will find some good advice and helpful people here and I for one am very
    grateful!

    Ophelia, I find the search facility most helpful particularly if I use words
    like 'Create', 'Recovery' or 'Search', but is there a list/index hidden
    somewhere which itemizes the main eventualities or am I expecting too much?

    I don't know, but I know a few people here who will:))

    I am not too sure what you mean about 'main evenualities' Unless... what
    you are looking for is in 'godmode'?

    Anyone?

    Yeah, 3-minute eggs are usually too runny. He should set it for 4-minutes.

    It would be a ready made all in one alphabetical index which would guide me
    to whatever programmes are available, such as Repair Disc, Recovery Disc
    Creation (which I have found) and many others, but I think that I may be
    asking too much. It just crossed my mind that I may be missing something.

    Sounds like it to me. I have it now but I followed the path given here.

    Please could someone post it again for Emrys?

    Ahh I didn't take it that he was new to computing. I thought he meant he
    was new to Win7 And WLM.

    No, as I said, I just wondered if there was an all in one index to
    programmes which I have not found. Obviously there is not otherwise someone
    would have said so by now. I have been computing for nearly ten years, but
    on Win 98 and Win 7 is totally new to me, but I like it. Thanks a lot.
