    Hi,

    If you want to change the timeout value to be longer, you can easily change the timeout value in your local web.config file (the timeout value is in minutes):

    <system.web>
        <authentication mode="Forms">
              <forms timeout="50000000"/>
        </authentication>
    </system.web>

    There are different places from where you can set time out in your application. For Details see:-

    How to set Session Timeout in ASP.Net

    If you set timeout as mentioned in above article and still you are loosing session before time or loosing session randomly then it might be because of server restarts. For details see:-

    Why .Net sessions are terminated/loss unexpectedly

    Hope this helps
