Windows Timeout Extended

As of Thursday, July 4, 2024 at 11:00, the Windows timeout for all physicians will be extended, to a total of 19 minutes. This nearly doubles the previous timeout of 10 minutes, and applies to any AHS Windows machine that a physician logs in to.  

  • This change is limited to AHS Windows devices only; personal devices are not impacted.
  • This change applies to the Windows timeout only; Epic and Citrix timeouts are not impacted.
  • After 10 minutes of inactivity, the screen will darken, but not logout. After 9 more minutes of inactivity, the screen will lock.
If your timeout on an AHS Windows machine has not been extended as of Thursday at 11:00, please log out and then log in again. If the problem persists, please contact IT Service Desk at 1-877-311-4300.
