dont know why phpmyadmin keeps bouncing back to sign in page

I have phpmyadmin installed on my server connected to mysql-server5.0: it usually works well but ever more periodically phpmyadmin throws me back to the sign in page for no apparent reason..if I click on a certain table and just that table for a while it will do this:: i put in my username and password, then I appear at 'that' last table I was trying to connect to...:: have no idea how to fix this.:

There is an 1800 second inactivity timer on my version.  When it expires, you have to login again.  Is that what you are talking about?

Sounds like it's timing out as mentioned above.

Try editing your phpMyAdmin's and update the LoginCookieValidity to the following:
$cfg['LoginCookieValidity'] = 3600 * 9; // 9 hours
