Despite all efforts to disable OSX 10.7.4 continues to log me out every 5 minutes of computer non-use. Especially annoying when trying to complete a long back-up!

Any particular reason you're on 10.7.2 and haven't updated to the most recent release (10.7.5)?

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

No reason; just haven't taken the time to do the update to 10.7.5 (actually checked again - I'm on 10.7.4 sorry)

OK. Those minor point releases are primarily bug fixes. So, when you sit a few versions behind, you are going to be subject to those bugs that have been long since corrected in subsequent releases. I would update first and then troubleshoot (if still necessary) later.

OK. Under security settings in user preferences go to advanced, and there is a checkbox of Automatically logging out. Uncheck it and viola. No more automatic logout.

Peter click on the tick/x box and leave favourable feedback.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
