Timeout functionality in "vncviewer" ?

Sun Oct 01, 2017 11:03 pm

I'm running Real VNC viewer and server under Raspbian Jessie.

I've noticed that if I launch the viewer and leave it idle, after some time, it disappears (process is gone as seen in a "ps" listing).

Is there some parameter in the viewer settings that needs to be adjusted to prevent this timeout from happening?
If this post appears in the wrong forums category, my apologies.
