System will automatically close my x server after a certain idle time.

I open a lot windows and applications, since I don't want to re-open them again, so every time I go out, just leave my computer on. After re-installing slackware, I find that after a certain idle period, that is no one use the system for a certain time, the system will close the x server connection and return back to console. Can anyone help with this issue?

best regards,

Perhaps it is not the closing the Xsession. Perhaps you are getting an error when it tries to go into sleep mode or when the screen saver comes on and it is "crashing the Xsession" Try changing the settings for your power control.
