    is there a way to "hack" and extend the password timeout time? my IT dept has it set at 30 min...which is very lame (but i do understand the security implications, etc), but wanted to know if anyone figured out a way to manually override this and use, say, the 24 hours?

    the keys exist in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\GoodLink\Password

    you can change them and the do take effect, if you change the timeout key to 10 you can then select 8hrs in the timeout drop down listing.

    however, they revert back to the policy values rather quickly. to experiment, I've changed the length to 1 and set a 1 character password. The value in the registry has changed back to 6, so I'm waiting to see if I'm forced to change it.
