Automatically Reset After A Child Leaves The Computer

Wednesday, 8 June 2011 07:32 by JRBenning

If you have PBPC in your school or library, you know more often than not the kids leave the computer without exiting a game or program.  Wouldn't it be nice to have the system automatically reset to the Welcome screen after a certain timeframe?  Well, you actually can.  It's a hidden feature in our Settings.xsd file.  Just open it up in Notepad and look for...

<IdleTimeout>0</IdleTimeout>

The value represents the number of minutes without mouse or keyboard movement that it will wait until it resets.  This is a very popular  feature with our library clients!
