Auto Logout

Determines if Screen Pass will logout idle logon sessions. If Auto Logout 'Off' is selected none of the other settings apply. The 'Auto Logout Delay' specifies when the logout will occur in terms of minutes after the session is locked. The 'Action' determines the state of the workstation after auto logout, i.e. simple logoff, power shutdown, restart, or hibernate. If hibernate is selected, the login session is not actually terminated.\n\nThe active hours represent the time of day during which auto logout can occur. The auto logout period includes the starting minute but not the ending minute . The end time may be earlier than the start time, so you may choose for auto logout to occur only after business hours. If the start and end times are equal, the auto logout is always in effect.\n\nIf the 'No logout if unsaved data exists' box is checked, the workstation will not be logged off if any application has unsaved data. This option has no effect if the hibernate option is checked, as no data is lost during hibernation. If hibernate is selected and hibernation is not supported on a particular workstation, the action becomes a Logoff with 'No logout if unsaved data'.
