    For shells that read /etc/profile (like bash, ksh, sh) append:
    TMOUT=N
    export TMOUT

    (In Debian you can get away by putting TMOUT=N in /etc/environment).

    If you use csh, tcsh, or any in the *csh family, then
    edit /etc/csh.cshrc and add:

    set autologout = 15

    (if you google for it, you'll find many answers)
