John, you have it backwards. I work for the Federal Government. We get
audited every 3.5 months. We are not ALLOWED to leave any server logged out.
The one time they caught us with only a few servers, they bit out heads off.
These are the best IT Auditors in the country. Are you saying that Microsoft
and the Federal Government are wrong? I think you've been working too hard
and have forgotten the basics, perhaps, here.

Some thing is really wrong here. In all the reading I have done, best
practice documentation I have read, IT personal I have talked to, Microsoft
seminars I have attended, Microsoft classes I have taken, Microsoft tests I
have taken, Microsoft Security team members I have talked to, never has it
been said that an easy admin mistake is to not have a computer logged on.
Just the opposite, only be logged on when needed.
