         I just fired up my laptop to answer another question on the 
list. It has already been 5 minutes since I did anything. With the 
screen saver at 5 minutes it would have dropped out. Then I would come 
back to it and bring up the darn password panel!  While working on it 
this computer, if it had the same setup would drop out. It is for me a 
bad idea.
