Hi

I've created a website using VS2010 and the build in user account controls.  The site works fine the only issue I have is if I am logged in and leave my computer for 5 min then I have to log out and back in.

How can I either remove this auto log out "feature" or extend the time until a user is forced to log back in?

Thanks
