I am not aware of a timeout setting on the Chromium browser.

I just loaded a program on my machine. It takes 29 minutes and 30 seconds to run. I ran it twice with no failure. In both cases, I had a wifi dongle plugged in. On the first run, I did not have a remote connection. On the second run, I had a remote connection from another desktop computer on the same network.

I think we can solve this more quickly if you call me at 707-559-8539. We can post the solution when we figure out what is causing the problem.

Doug,. I believe I have solved my issue. I was using an old LCD TV as a monitor which I have replaced with a 23" Dell 2314T touchscreen monitor. Since then I have had no issues with the browser going into sleep mode. Unsure if it was due to voltage draw or communication through the HDMI...
