Peserving PHP Sessions thru browser windows

My website has a page that is members only while all other pages are open to anybody. When members navigate from the members only page to open pages I use session function calls to keep them logged in with a username variable. The member page checks the username against my database to see if they are still logged in. This process works fine as long as the member stays within the same window. If the member opens a new browser window they have to login again. Is there anyway to perserve the session beyond a browser window? I'm still brainstorming on this. Perhaps someone else has already figured it out.

U might want to keep session information somehow and check if session timed-out when you re-enter the login page..

More details here

if that's not it, please post your idea of how it should work and what it should do..
