When using Matlab online, complex functions automatically seem to timeout after 200 or so seconds, and automatically kick me out. Is there any way to change this?

Hi Andrew:
As a clarification to the above statement, the current idle time for MATLAB Online is 15 minutes, which is determined by user activity. For example, if you are running a script, but are still active in the session (even by something as small as moving your cursor in the active browser window), then you are considered not idle. Your script will continue to run for as long as you are considered not idle for more than 15 minutes. Your sessions can last for as long as this is the case.
I hope this helps!

Hello Hisham,
I have the same problem. My script is not idle, because I'm still editing and running the code. However, I'm forced out and the page is reloaded and my previous results are cleared.
Can you change this setting in your system?

Currently time limit for execution of a script in MATLAB is 15 minutes. There is also currently no way to change this length of time. Scripts longer than this must be executed in the Desktop version of MATLAB.

Is there some upper time limit as well? When I exit browser after using Matlab Online, when i return, I am informed that a session is in progress and i have to manually exit it before using matlab online again?
