I'm not even going to dig back through my old blog posts to see what I've written about autologout in the past. Suffice it to say it has never worked well and I've been hating it as long as anyone else. It just had all sorts of issues. So a few weeks ago I buckled down and completely rewrote the whole thing from scratch. And I think it's going to be much, much better now. Basically, just about anything counts as "activity" now. If you type anything into the page or move your mouse over it in any way, it will recognize that you're there and keep your connection to the server alive.
