I never realized how fast time goes since pokerstars started auto-logging me out! And it goes like this...
I survey what is happening with upcoming tournaments, and figure out my plan of action, and await registration and tournament starts...
I don't feel I am the only one that does this, and the timeframe between registration and start is really more than a half hour...so when you are not playing, you get logged out, and the frigging tournament starts without you...
THERE HAS TO BE A BETTER WAY!
Yeah I got a new computer recently which required me to download pokerstars again. I was really upset by the fact that they implemented the auto log out. It was actually one of the things I had noticed in the past that I marked as a positive for PS. I've also noticed that the client has more glitches and does some weird stuff like not remembering notes and tags after I've been auto logged out and sign back in so I usually just close the app and re-open it when I do get auto logged out. I guess just try and hit the Cashier button every few minutes or another button when you are waiting for your tournament to start.
I definitely agree this is a inconvenience too and hope they do something about it!
I have not played much on Stars for the past 3 month. But before that I could prevent the auto log-out by having a Youtube video running to prevent my computer from going into sleep mode. If that is no longer working, then I guess, you just have to scroll around in the lobby every 20 minutes while waiting for your tournaments to start.
Very irritating , pokerstars also is one more room like 888poker using this feature , maybe to be protected by bots and automated programms , but it still is not good , it makes me angry every time I get logged out , and then I have to type password manually , and I am very bored to do it lol . I open sometimes some tables to watch action or replays , if I forgot to click for some time , I get logged out . But I register 10 min before the game starts , hopefully I won't have problem like yours mmmmmm.......
I don't mind the auto log out so much as the fact that I cannot get access to the poker school scratch games for well over a week now. It keeps saying I reached an unsecure site, but I never had problems before. I am still waiting for the poker stars tech guys to get back to me.
yea the auto log out can be a pain, but that's ok with me. Hopefully in the future they change it that's all. Well I don't mind it cause, I used to be logged in before. My kids would come, to the computer. They play it while I have been sleeping, at times I caught them. If I have forgot to log out.
And I remember in the old times it was a good "security feature": when logged in, no other player / abuser can login in your account (maybe PO told me this tip) because you are already logged in on some device
