How long does viewstate persist?

I'm working with an application where the initial page logs the user in and then creates a popup window where they'll spend up to an hour. Can I be assured that viewstate values will still be active if the user clicks a button in the original window after that much time of inactivity?

session state can expire, go to web.config and set SessionState timeout="150"
