change the phpMyAdmin login expire time

For some reason my login to phpMyAdmin on my apache server here expires after 1800 seconds, and this is extremely annoying. I searched on my.ini and I couldn't find any parameter to alter the login time... where is this setting stored, and why they have put such a dumb value as default?

Thanks in advance... these issues with software using stupid default settings really pisses me off.

1800 seconds is 30 minutes...After that amount of time of inactivity its a good idea for it to log you out. But if you want to change it, it is probably in your settings in phpmyadmin somewhere.

Thats not enough time because I am constantly working on mi site all day and I need to check out the DB very often. And each time I must login again... if someone knows where is that setting, please let me know, thanks!
