    When you log in, do you put a check mark in the "remember me" box?

    That might help, but even if it isn't checked, it shouldn't log out users that frequently. I don't check it, and I get logged out after ~20 minutes of idle.

    Kholdstare, what browser do you use? Most of the time I use Chrome.

    Chrome on 7 and Safari on Mac.

    I don't even click the "log out" button. Whenever I have to log out, I just click on a link and the page loads and I'm logged out. In fact, I don't even have to load any page. By the time I think I should log-out, I automatically find myself already logged out !!!

    Are you clicking "remember me"?

    May you want to log out, clear the cookies/cache and then log in and check remember me. I don't remember if there is a 'keep me logged' in box.

    Thank you Evo, Turbo and Astronuc. Its working fine. (Although remember me is not supposed to work that way. But, whatever cooks my steak. haha). Probably I had forgotten this somehow the first time turbo had mentioned it. Gotta remember it from now on. !!!
