Why do my terminal windows keep going away by themselves?

You are probably using C Shell (/bin/csh) and have the autologout
set (it is set to 60 minutes by default). Put an "unset autologout" in
your .cshrc.

If you are using the Korn (/bin/ksh) or POSIX shell (/bin/sh) it is
probably due to the value set for the shell variable TMOUT. Set it to 0
(infinite timeout) in your .kshrc or .profile.
