Question combo of observations; are they connected? LQ Spy vs. Auto-logout..

This seems to be a 2-part issue (if it's an issue at all) so I'll give an explanation of the circumstances, and perhaps we can figure out if there's anything to figure out.

The scenario:
Recently I have been using the LQ Spy regularly. I have it going on one browser window on one monitor. On another monitor, I have my main browser window, where I do normal browsing stuff, Googling, etc..

Issue A) I notice that after a certain amount of time, the LQ Spy stops 'spying' and it rolls over to the main page

Is it supposed to do this? Maybe it's an automatic time-out? (I haven't actually timed it, but I will if necessary)

Issue B) I usually have a browser window open *somewhere* at any given time, and generally speaking, I tend to stay logged in to whatever sites I am logged into, such as my email/webmail inbox, and LQ, and maybe NVnews.
At night, if I put the computer to sleep/suspend, and IIRC even if I disconnect the firewall/LAN machine from the internet, the next morning I can power everything up, and *still* be logged in.

But, the last few days or so, I keep ketting 'booted' from LQ after some period of time (again I haven't timed it literally) and I discover this when I come to the computer, click a link, and am sent to the 'error' page which tells me that I'm not logged in.
It's not my browser master-password timing out; I know that because my username and password are entered into the login form waiting for me to press LOGIN.

Is this something new, or should it happen at all?

Issue C) Are issues A and B connected?

A) This is intentional. After 8 hours you will be redirected to the main LQ page. You can go right back to LQ Spy if you'd like.
B) This should not happen. Are you checking the "Remember Me" box?
C) They should not be connected in any way.
