Hello, all,
Thanks the responses from Iordanov and Lee. I took the Lee's advice,

It shouldn't log you out. Try running your application nohup command and it
shouldn't die event if you log out.
I think there is a piece of software which will log you out after

name eludes me.
What happens to me, though, is that the cleaners pull the power cord out and
then put it back in, don't ask.

Do you have this patch or a later version installed?
They probably have a later one out but this one worked for me...
