Default User Session Timeout value

I don't know what it's currently set to, but it's some small amount of time.

sometimes, when I'm browsing the board at wor-- er, I mean... when I'm browsing the board [ahem], I'll get momentarily distracted by something else, and when I return to browsing the board, I'm no longer logged in.

can that be changed? lengthened? turned off altogether?

Has never happened to me. Do you have it set to remember you each time you come to the site?

I have it set that way and never have to log in

It will stay logged in forever if you click "remember me," it's purposely setup to eventually log you off if your inactive due the popularity of public computers. I'm not going to turn that safety feature off since the user can easily select "remember me" when signing in, but I'll look to see what the timeout is set at and see about making it longer.
