Prior to EE 2.8 (and after 2.2 I think) there's a hidden config variable called
cp_session_ttl that allows you to set the time in seconds after which a cp session will expire if there has been no user activity. I think you can also set a value of
0 to have sessions not expire (untested).
As of 2.8 this is replaced by
You can set config variables in your
config.php (which you can find at
system/expressionengine/config/config.php unless you've moved things around).
