Why do I keep getting logged out?

In the past 2-3 days, after a period of inactivity, like overnight, I am getting logged out. I don't reboot or close my browser. The change seems to be coincided with when I got a message that I had a dead email address on file. I went in my profile and updated it to a working email address. I'm wondering if I inadvertently turned off some option to keep me logged in, or if something else changed. It's an annoyance, and one that will make me less likely to be on here as often (which may be a good thing).

Did something change, or what do I update in my UserCP to keep me logged in?

Updating e-mail should not have made any difference but there are some things you can check...

1. When you first login, tick the "remember me box"
2. Check to see if you have allowed cookie exchange with the site (browser settings) we use them to keep you logged in at page changes.
3. Have there been any updates to your security scheme or Operating system that might have impacted cookie exchange?

1. I do that
2. I do
3. Not that I'm aware of, but updates do happen under the covers.

It stopped as quickly as it started. I just had 2-4 days where this happened. Very strange.
