I'm running gnome in a VM. I leave the VM up all the time, even when I sign out of VNC. Lately I have noticed when I come back in the next morning all the terminal windows I had open have closed, presumably due to timing out after a night of inactivity.
I want to prevent this from happening. I find it annoying to reopen and position my terminals. more importantly checking what is on my terminals is one of the things that helps me remember what I was doing when I had to log off the night before. How can I prevent them from closing?
