Even if I kill the google window from which I am accessing the internet I still remain logged in.
I have my session set to 60 minutes before it auto logs me out.

Forum logins are held in a cookie which will be on your PC, try clearing you cache and cookies for this site. I've cleared the site cache as well, but that shouldn't have any effect. I can log in and out ok across multiple browsers .

Is anyone else having this problem ?

I have a fundamental question - why would anyone ever wish to log out in the first place? :)

More seriously, I went in and found I was logged out - I guess Mr Lurkio may have logged everyone out when he cleared the site cache?

But when I logged back in, there was a "stay logged in for 60 minutes" displayed as default, as well as a "never log me out" box, which I obviously ticked.

@Les: maybe that "never let me escape" box was ticked for you? There is of course the "Logout" menu option at the top right-hand end of the screen (just next to Members): does that have any effect for you?

Its all fine now.

I leant a long time ago its better to login and logout and log in afresh as the software is reinitialised when I log in.
