When you start working with Umbraco and start creating some document types and templates, you may be working in Visual Studio for long periods of time. After you've made your changes and tried logging back into Umbraco 7, you may notice you have been automatically logged out.
Obviously, in the real world, this is useful for security but as a developer it is very annoying. To get around this feature you can open up your web.config and find the 'umbracoTimeOutInMinutes' setting in your App Settings. In here you should see an entry like this:
<add key="umbracoTimeOutInMinutes" value="20" />
<!-- set to true to auto update login interval (and there by disabling the lock screen -->
<!-- change in 4.8: Disabled users are now showed dimmed and last in the tree. If you prefer not to display them set this to true -->
