What you want is for Windows to forget the password. What is happening
is Windows by default in 99.99% of cases remembers the last user name
and password for each share; so, you won't have to keep typing the
password on your personal computer every 60-seconds. That would be very
frustrating and counter productive.
1-minute of inactivity is a very short time! Are you sure you want this?
It took me more than 1-minute just to produce this response and send it.
