CSYou (and myHumboldt itself) is protected by a time-out period which logs you out of the application if you have not accessed it for 45 minutes. You'll see a warning message before the system logs you out, at which point you can choose to stay logged in. 

Think security when you log out of an application or myHumboldt and be sure to close your browser to fully quit or exit the application.
