Timed log out

Does physics forum browser have a default browser timed log out option? If so, how do I turn it off? If not, why doesn't it?

I believe if you're inactive for 20 minutes your status changes to offline. I don't know if this logs you out since I've got my ID remembered and I'm logged in when I visit the site again. Greg can tell you more.
