Prevent Admin Timeout

Question

So I and 3 other admins run our arma server. Often several of us will be working on server projects while being logged into the game while it is minimized in the background. Sometimes this can be going on for hours leading up to inevitably being kicked from the server for inactivity. We were wondering, is it possible to prevent the timeout for ONLY our server admins and if so how?

Thanks for any information. (Sorry for posting this in the wrong place before)

Every time we alt tab back in after an extended period prior to server restart I see that the water/food icons are flashing (even though god mode no stats change is active) and that I'm dead with the light red overlay (same as when you're shot or otherwise killed). I'll have to screenshot and pull the .rpt file for the next time it happens. 

god mode no stats change means it will only get u in godmode but will keep draining food water etc.

I've looked thru infiSTAR, Exile config (both server and client side), mission description, and BEserver cfg for RCON. I don't see anything that has an idle kick for players. You're sure it's an idle kick and not a signature kick or something else? Is there something in the server rpt about the kick?

What are you using to kick idle players?

Nothing as far as I know, unless infistar also has this feature. 

After sitting there for several hours all of my admins, myself included, have alt tabbed out to find the connection is lost with the server yet the server is still active and hasn't started. So something is in charge of kicking idle I'm supposing.

Maybe that's what it is. I'll try godmode normal and see if it persists.

Yup you were right. That's what was doing it half the time. The other half is battle eye timeouts
