Default XP logon after idle

Hey guys, I have a problem that came out of nowhere and it goes like this:

I leave the computer on overnight sometimes to download some big files, when I wake up and check on the computer, I have to logon with my password. Problem is, when it logs me off, my bittorrents get closed. Now, my screensaver is NOT password protected, and besides, the default screensaver is running when this happens.

Where do I find the auto logoff settings if there are any, this is a XP home SP1 machine, always scanned for virus' and sypware/adware and the registry is cleaned weekly. It just started doing this a week ago out of the blue, I have not changed any settings.

Thanks,
Ohgr

You should find the settings in Control Panel - > Power Options and there under the Power schemes tab. Im not 100% sure though as I am using win XP pro SP2. But I hope this helps.. =)

Hibernation is off, sleep is off, standby is off. Power scheme is always on. I just checked.
