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 the GUI on a PC that has been logged into the GUI and 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.

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