    Yes, that's what a Mac does when it sleeps.

     

    What were you expecting, and what did you get instead?

    I have a variation on this issue.

     

    We have been rolling out Lion and came accross this issue and applied the fix suggested and it works. However the new twist is that when the user logs in all their apps have shutdown (without savaing).

     

    For security reasons our company insists that all workstations (Mac or Windows) implement account lock down after 15 mins on inactivity. So I need to find a fix for this.

     

    Cheers

    Phil

    Stretch display sleeping out beyond the automatic logout time, so it logs out before it sleeps.
