Windows Logon Screen

Windows Logon Screen

anyone know a way to increase the amount of time the windows logon screen is being displayed to a user? we´ve configured our thin-clients to power-on -> login -> power-off after logoff. users complain because if they aren´t quick enought the device goes off and they have to boot again. there must be a reg key to control this

RE: Windows Logon Screen

Under your Management Console,  click server farm property and go to SpeedScreen browser acceleration. Hope it answers youe question....

RE: Windows Logon Screen

hi there
i wasn't looking for speedscreen. i'm looking the windows logon screen (username / password / domain). the window is beeing displayed for about a minute. if you don't enter your credentials during this time you'll have to press ctrl-alt-del to access that window again.

RE: Windows Logon Screen

A possible solution would be to place a dialogue box on the screen for the user to click OK to login.  You can do this by adding data to the Registry value, HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\Current Version\WinLogon\LegalNoticeCaption and LegalNoticeText.

RE: Windows Logon Screen

thanks - will try ;)

RE: Windows Logon Screen

nope - didn't work. the logon screen still time out ...

RE: Windows Logon Screen

The logon screen will still time out but does a dialogue box come up first that must be answered?  It is the window before the logon screen I am thinking wont timeout.  
   I have not actually tried this on a session so I do not know if it will display the box or not.  

RE: Windows Logon Screen

Sorry sascha6002.  I tried it and I see the dialogue box times out as well.  I tried it on my PC and it seemed to work.  The problem might be that the session is not logged in to Citrix until they authenticate.  I will let you know if I think of anything else.
