    Fixing the position of the login box on XP

    A minor point, but I don't suppose anybody knows of a way to prevent the XP login box from being dragged around the screen?

    Our seniors have an irritating habit of hiding it away into the corner which causes unnecessary fuss for the primary classes that follow

    They're normally already in there before it has a chance to kick in...

    Could do but it would have to be lowered to such a point that it would be more of an annoyance than the seniors fiddling with the login box!

    on my systems I have my .default screensaver set to come on after a minute

    my students have their own screensaver time defined in their own profiles

    I think the only way you could do it is with a custom gina.

    Pgina may be able to do it but I'm not sure and on just checking the site looks like the lead dev quit last september.

    A custom gina would do it, as I know for a fact I cannot move the RM CC3 logon window.
