Are there any examples that I can see here or be pointed to to show how to set the session timeout for my web application in the code behind? (C#)?

You can set the timeout in the web.config or in the code. Please see more details in this link, http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.web.sessionstate.httpsessionstate.timeout(v=vs.110).aspx
