How do I timeout a session?

Hi, I'm using Silverstripe 2.4.7 and I have a lot of forms on the front-end.

Sometimes, when a user has been inactive for a while, their session times out. Because the forms use AJAX to retrieve data from the database, the user clicks on a link and they get the login page instead of the fetched content they were expecting.

I can understand why that happens, but what I would like to know, is how can I time sessions out (in dev) so that I can test for that sort of behaviour?

I tried deleting the cookies but that made no difference. How do I time out a session?
