There are two settings that need to be set in IIS;

1. Under the web page (either virtual directory (MEWEBMAIL) or the host header "MailEnable Webmail")) on the Virtual Directory TAB there is a [Configuration] button. When the next screen comes up click on the Options TAB and change the session state - timeout to 90 (or what ever the value you want to use)

2. Under the Application Pools folder listing there is an application pool named "MailEnableAppPool", get the properties of this. The click on the performance TAB and for the option "Shutdown worker process after being idle for time in minutes" make the value the same value that you used for the number one option.
