Why does my OWA session time out?

A lot of companies use an OWA session security solution such as OWA Forms-based authentication, ISA Forms-based authentication, RSA SecurID, Messageware TimeGuard, or SafeWord from Secure Computing.  These solutions all have an inactivity timeout feature which logs users off OWA users after an extended period of inactivity.  Note that working on a new message is not seen as activity by OWA -- you have to be moving in the main OWA frame to be active.
