Change the GUI idle timeout

By default, the GUI disconnects administrative sessions if no activity takes place for five minutes. This idle timeout is recommended to prevent someone from using a logged-in GUI on a PC that has been left unattended.

To change the idle timeout length:
  1. Go to System > Settings.
  2. Change the idle timeout minutes (1 to 480 minutes) as required.
  3. Select OK to save the setting. The setting will take affect only after logging out and logging back in.

In this page you can also reset all widgets to their default settings.
