Change Inactivity Disconnect Time?

Is it possible to change the length of time before LMI will automatically disconnect a remote mac session? I'm accessing a macbook from IE on my PC and I frequently want to leave the window open on a second monitor for reference, but LMI keeps shutting it down. To make matters worse, sometimes when the disconnect warning dialog pops up it won't let me click the button to keep the connection active.

On the left-hand side, click on Preferences>Remote Control Settings. Then change the time under "Idle time allowed" (up to 24h).

 

Hope this helps.

Is the idle time option available in LMI Free or is this just a function now only in the Pro.

This stumped me, too. It appears the timeout setting has moved. I found it instead under "Advanced Settings" then its top "Network" section. There's an "idle time allowed", which can indeed now be set to days, but you may miss it as it appears under the checkbox for "enable wake on lan". Hope that helps.
