Humm.  It takes 15 seconds for the idle timer to go off, unless you've
changed something.  I can't imagine your players are not getting a visual
cue that they're logged in and are unable to send any data for 15

You can change the following line in comm.c, though,

  if (!(pulse % (15 * PASSES_PER_SEC)))


  if (!(pulse % (30 * PASSES_PER_SEC)))

to give them twice as much time to sit around without typing anything.
I'll add a configuration parameter for the number of seconds to idle
people out to CircleMUD for the next release (whenever that might be).
