    Lengthen Login Times


    Would it be possible to allow the idle logins to last longer then they do now? Seems every time I go looking up things when I return I find that I have been logged out. What is the present idle timer set to?

    Regards

    I think it's currently set to 15 minutes.

    If you'll check the "Remember Me" box right next to your username at login time, you won't run into any prematurely logged out issues at all unless you clear your browser cookies.


    Edit (03-15-2012): just a quick note to say that our session timeout has been increased to 20 minutes so that should be long enough for anyone to get their message posted.

    Thnx for the response. I'll have to time the setting. Don't use the Remember Me check on any site. Never know who might have to access my computer. Support staff mostly.

    Right... I don't log in with the "remember me" option either, but it's very rare that I run into the auto logout issue. If I'm going to be gone for long, I just hit the reload button now and then on any LinuxForums webpage to stay logged in.
