    When I close my laptop, eg to go to work, to bed, to watch TV etc, I don’t log out, so my avatar rests visible. But sometimes I type a reply and click Submit only to discover that I have been logged out.

    I never used to log out but because I sometimes have long absences from the site I now log out so that it doesn’t appear that I’m just not bothering to participate. :-)

    Maybe when you close your laptop it disconnects you from the internet? I could be wrong but mine seems to and therefore I get logged out. :unsure:

    As the topic’s there already I’ll not bother to start a new one.

    I tend not to log out when I close my laptop, as I said in my original post. Today, 5 hours after I closed my laptop, I opened it again and typed a reply which was accepted, because I was still logged in. Less than 5 minutes later, in submitting another reply I discovered I’d been logged out.

    Fruitcake makes a good point about not wanting to be seen as not bothering to participate; is there any way to change the behind-the-scenes settings so a member is automatically logged out after a reasonable period of non-activity instead of the apparently random system that is in place now?

    There is that I suppose, tigre. But when I close the lid I often re-open it less than half an hour later if something springs to mind.
