How long before sign in expires and I have to sign in again?

I have been typing a response to a thread only to discover when I tried to post the response I was no longer signed in. I guess the forum timer doesn't see thread response typing as an activity. How long do I have before I am automatically signed out?

Happens to me all the time. especially if you have a thought and open another window and go searching for some info.
I think the site has ADD and we are victims. Easy to log back on but then have to go to quick links for the days post.

Do you have the "Remember me" box ticked when you log in....? Again, I am always logged in unless I log out.... Even when I shut down my PC, when I hit the stromtrooper forum I am already logged in...

If I don't tick the remember me box, it seems I have to re login after about 10 minutes of inactivity.

bikeflyer and porsche: It's a setting of some sort on your computer. I have to do the same thing, now, but I didn't used to have to do it BEFORE I had my laptop cleaned and adjusted by a local shop. I remember the guy setting "something" after asking me if I wanted sign-ins/passwords to be saved and I said "No". This was on the heels of a PITA identify-theft experience I had to endure (and am still dealing with months later).

Well heck. I don't know how I didn't notice that "remember me" box. Thanks to those who pointed it out.

I almost never have my computer remember passwords for me for other applications though. I'm a little too paranoid about someone getting their hands on my computer and draining my retirement accounts, banking accounts, etc.
