    I ran SIMS over Terminal Services - saves you having to map a drive on workstations and lets you set a 3-minute (or whatever) screensaver timeout on the TS session without locking the whole computer.

    Hi Steve ... have you spoken to support lads about 'time-out' options? May be something we can do....?!? jen
