Help with Legal Notice before login and forced logoff after a specific period of inactivity. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a few questions about the optional legal notice that can be setup on Windows Vista.  First I was wondering if there is anyway to change what font size is displayed on the screen.  The default font is really small and very hard for our users to read.  Next I was wondering if there was a way to have the text either right aligned or centered instead of the default left align as our legal notice is not very long and we would like to use shorter lines centered on the screen.  Finally I was wondering if anyone knows of a way to set the machines to automatically logoff after a period of inactivity, say 20 minutes or so.  Preferably I would like some kind of warning for the user to be able to cancel the logoff if they are sitting at the machine to prevent any unneccessary data loss.  Any help with these matters would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Officially there is no such method.

     

    3.         Finally I was wondering if anyone knows of a way to set the machines to automatically logoff after a period of inactivity, say 20 minutes or so. 

     

    You could create a task sequence, please refer to: automatic logout after inactivity/idle
