TIME_WAIT and too many sockets in that state

I am trying to do some experiment with web-server on linux and looks like within a minute it leaves too many sockets in (netstat -a) TIME_WAIT state and cpu utilization drops to almost 5% or less. Will someone please tell me how to handle this situation and change TIME_WAIT default from 60 to other value. I don't find a parameter to do that.
