Joomla Template Chooser timeout $lifetime

I would like my site visitors to choose their own Template from Template Chooser. My problem, is that the session appars to Timeout and revert back to the Default Template. I've read that I can change the timeout from 15mins to (long time), but can't find where to make this change in php.
It's Joomla 1.5.20

Sorry, this must be just for Logged in users, as after I rebooted my test PC, it reverted back to default.

The default that comes with Joomla. I've Googled this quite a bit, think I may see if there's a download/plugin that has "Sticky Templates"
