When I log into the OWA site after about 5 minutes, it times out and ask for me to log back in. How can I change this to be indefinite? Thank in in advance.

Indefinite is a bad idea as it reduces the security of the OWA application.
You can adjust the time out using the OWA Admin tool, which is a free download from Microsoft. Install the tool on a WORKSTATION, not your Exchange server.

I got the tool and install and configure it. Which one of those settings are the one to modify that particular setting?

It is only available to you with forms based authentication enabled.

It is on the forms based authentication settings page. There are two timeouts, depending on whether it is a public or private settings.

If you select Private computer, your default timeout is set to 24 hours.  If you would like to change either of these default timeout settings, you can do so by adding the following registry values:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSExchangeWeb\OWA
Registry Value: PublicClientTimeout
Value Type: REG_DWORD
Value Data: (set the desired minutes in decimal)

and

Registry Value: TrustedClientTimeout
Value Type: REG_DWORD
Value Data: (set the desired minutes in decimal)

You will need to restart IIS for the changes to take effect.

Which one worked, because I showed you what to do and where to do it, but my answer wasn't the accepted or assisted answer.
