    For the last week or so, whenever I leave the computer for a half-hour or so, when I come back to it I have to sign in again. Yesterday I had to do this at least five times! Have I pushed the wrong button somewhere, or is Addy trying to tell me something? :unsure:

    LMAO...............darn you caught on!

    Check your power settings, that is where you tell your computer to go to sleep, hibernate etc and if a password is needed to sign back on. Maybe an update was pushed to it that changed your settings.
    OH you mean to the GPF site! opps
    When you log in do you check the little box that says stay logged in?

    All I can find is a little box that says 'Remember me'. I'll see if I can find the 'Stay logged in" box.

    WOO HOOO!!! FOUND IT! I always use the log-in screen part way down the right side, and it doesn't HAVE that option. Will try and see if that makes any difference. Thank you, Addy. BTW, what is the 'Remember me' button supposed to do? :unsure:

    But isn't that a function of the computer? Every so often it asks if I want it to remember that info. All I have to do is hit "h", and then "HARO" when it pops up.

    yep you are right, I was thinking of one of my other forums, when you tell it to remember you it is like stay logged in here.

    The only time I've ever had to sign back in on here is right after the big update. Took me awhile to remember my password. Actually there are a lot of sites that if I get logged out, I may never get back in :nailbiting:

    I have a password manager now that helps me remember all the darn passwords, forums, banks, cc etc etc. Very high secure pw'ds for financial, easy for forums.

    Nope, that didn't do it! I hit the 'Stay logged in' box, and it STILL shuts me out when I come back later!

    Sounds like a becky or ian fix, That is the only thing I could suggest to you.
    I can shut down the computer come back to it later fire up and still in the forum, once I open firefox that is.

    Maybe something in you computer settings that gets rid of your history every time you leave a site. I have firefox and I have it set to remember my history so I can stay logged into sites. Check your privacy settings as that is where mine was located.

    Good idea jw, didn't think of the browser. I always set mine to remember. Go to options.

    Well, I may have to find another pond website! The problem isn't logging off, I just leave the computer to go and feed the fish, and when I come back, I've been tossed off the site! Three times today already! Seriously, Addy, if you want to get rid of me, just SAY SO! Or has j.w. placed a hex on my connection? :cry:

    lol I have not been on to even notice you enough to kick ya off....................
    My one dvr system is kicking itself off, according to the support peeps it is the upload speed, it needs x to stay on and with the two I have minus x, the older system is kicked off, maybe you have something hogging your bandwidth and it chooses the gpf to kick off.
