Fast user switching

Guest

I have a question about the mode the computer is in when a user is not logged
in.
What I've seen is this, if I'm logged in and the wife wants to use her
account, she switches to her account, when she is done she just logs out and
leaves the screen at the welcome screen. and after a period of time the pc
seems to go into either hibernation or asleep, but the wierd part is, it
doesn't wake up when pressing a key nor moving the mouse?
so what mode is it in, and why doesn't it see that I'm still running in the
background
and run the screen saver program instead of sleeping or whatever it's doing?
I don't want it to sleep/hibernate whatever.

Disable standby and hibernation in the power options. The two are very
different. In hibernation the computer turns off, in standby it goes to a
low power state but still turned on.

I already have my account set as never power off same with monitor, but if
the screen is setting at the welcome after the wife logged out of hers, why
is it going into this wierd mode? not sure what mode it is.

Check the "Power Options" in the wife's profile. Don't know about "User
Switching" but normally XP at the Logon screen has the Power settings of
the last person that logged on.

I will check, I'm pretty certain that all users are set the same, ie never
power off anything, but I'll double check. I really like that fast user
switching.
