Auto Log off of​ Student PCs Left Idle​ - ​from 1st March 2016

11 January 2016
Effective 1 March 2016, student PCs left unattended or idle will automatically​log off after 30 minutes.​  Students have requested this policy due to increasing demand for PCs and study spaces, especially during the busy exam periods.

What Happens During Auto ​Log Off
When a machine has been idle,​ a message displays on the monitor indicating that the count down to auto ​log off has begun. To stop the count down, press Cancel.

Once the machine has ​logged off​, any unsaved work will be ​lost. 

Key Tip!  Always save your work to your personal drive (and not the desktop) frequently.
