Time out values for Windows XP Mode

When I use Windows XP Mode virtual machine and leave it unattended for awhile I find that it has timed out when I return. Is anyone aware of whether or not the time out value of XP Mde virtual machine is adjustable. If a registery hack is required I would appreciate the proper procedure for doing so.

Some information about this was discussed on an older thread here at SF with someone having a similar but not identical problem that could be a help. Windows XP Mode Questions
