I do understand that as a control panel/appliance software you need to keep
things basic for as wide an audience as possible. So while for me, I think
120min would be perfect I understand it might not be right for everyone.

In the end the best solution for now would be to simply change everything to
be a real hour and this is fixed with the simple change to the php.ini

Longer term if you could get the -st working properly then "power users"
such as myself could use little hacks like I do to make it anything we want.
:-)

I understand this is all lower priority stuff though. Thanks for your time
on it.

In case anyone else wants a work-around, I did change the php.ini value so I
now have a real hour. I then found a chrome extension called Auto Refresh
(https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/auto-refresh/ifooldnmmcmlbdennkpd
nlnbgbmfalko?utm_source=chrome-app-launcher-info-dialog) and I have it set
to refresh the tab every 55 min. This keeps the session active and has been
working perfectly for the last few hours.
