http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dnaspnet/html/asp12282000.asp explains well (and is a good overall article) ... if you look in your web.config  there is a line that looks like ..

<sessionstate
      mode="inproc"
      cookieless="false"
      timeout="20"
      sqlconnectionstring="data source=127.0.0.1;user id=<user id>;password=<password>"
      server="127.0.0.1"
      port="42424"
  />


change the value of the timeout="" field.

If you want to set a time for the session to expire...
Session.TimeOut = 5 'Will expire in 5 mins

I thought that 5 min will be 5*60*1000 = 300000
or am I wrong?

nope... TimeOut property takes integer and set it in minutes... (not it milli seconds, as we have in Timer object)

I probably got confused because in JavaScript it is in milliseconds. I am using

window.setTimeout("alert('you will be logged off in 5sec');",5000);
