    Is there a maximum recommended value for setting the timeout value in
    web.config section <sessionState

    What are the possible repercussions of setting this value to high?

    I have a user base whose job tasks require them at times to open a
    page and ignore it for extended periods of time. The default value of 20 is
    causing problems so I need to increase it but have no known max value so I
    would like to set it so that timing out becomes a very remote possibility.
    One post here has suggested 24 hours (timeout="1440"). But I do not wish to
    create further issues with too high a value.
