How to increase session time

...avoid session timeouts & automatic logging out

In Plone 2.5, via ZMI, go to the ZMI root, then /temp_folder/session_data.

Change the "Data object timeout value (in minutes)" from 20 (the default) to, say, 60.  Press the Change button.

To make this change persist even if you restart Zope, go to the file system, find the zope.conf, and change the variable "session-timeout-minutes" to 60.  Save the file.  (Might have to do this for each ZEO client).
