When I'm away from my computer (Windows XP) for more than ~30 minutes, I get locked out, and have to press Ctrl+Alt+Delete to login. I've checked the screensaver settings, and it's not set to lock the screen.

Does anyone know what else could be causing this?

Thanks

Your computer may be going to 'sleep' or even 'hibernate'. Check your settings to ensure that the computer is not set to lock on sleep/hibernate or make it so the times are longer before this happens. You should be able to find the settings in your 'Power settings' from the Control Panel.
