Default Windows XP logoff sometimes kills Prime95

Sometimes logging off kills Prime95 under Windows XP Pro SP1! When that happens, I lose a few hours of CPU time thinking that Prime95 is running. I never saw this in 2 years under Windows 2000 Pro.

I have checked the option Start at Bootup.
I install & run as the default user, not Administrator, but I think that has the same privilege as Administrator. (This is the user under which I have done all my installs.)

This happened most recently July 4 after upgrading to 23.5. Don't think it's related to upgrade; I have seen it before in XP, not after an upgrade.

Work-around: on this isolated PC I can just stay logged in, but Prime95 runs a few % slower because more processes are running.
