I have an ASP.NET webiste I developed.  I have the following in my web.config file.

      <sessionState cookieless="true" timeout="20" />

However, it seems my session is timing out after 3 mins.  Any ideas how to resolve?

It could be in your IIS.  Ensure the worker process is not recycling.

Chances are the worker process is recycled meantime, Where do you store the sessions?
Making your sessions stored out of process may helps.

you can also know about another settings quickly from the nice article below

Thanks but that did not solve the problem.

Application pool’s Idle Time-out = 20 Mins

Session State Mode Settigs Values
-  In PRocess

Cookie Settings
- Mode = Use URI
- Regenerate expired session ID = true

Use hosting identity for impersonation = true

Do you have any calls to Session.Abandon in your code? If you do, perhaps one is being triggered inadvertently, which forces a new session on the next request to your site by a given user.

i click on a button which redirects me to a page.  I wait 1 minute - click on another button which goes to another page - no problem

I repeat above but wait 3 mins before clicking on button for redirect and the session is expired.

Do you perhaps have an inactivity detector in Javascript?

It seems to be a problem with the VM.  I copied the code to prod and not having the issue.  Something has to be recycling to cause the problem.
