Sir,

I am using Blue zone for mainframes. Whenever I leave the screen idle for some time, the session is logged off. Is there any macros/scripts to maintain the screen active?

Hello kar and welcome to the forums,

This is a feature rather than a problem. Idle sessions waste many resources and most systems have a time-out to conserve resources. It may be slightly inconvenient to you but why let a session "just sit there" for hours . . .?

If you believe your situation warrants special treatment, you should do as Enrico suggests and ask management to change the standards or exempt you from them.

Speaking as a systems programmer, there's two reasons to enforce time outs for TSO sessions: system performance, and programmers have a habit of editing a dataset used by a production job, getting distracted, and going home without releasing the dataset. This prevents overnight batch jobs from completing normally unless the TSO session cancels itself, or is canceled by an operator. So you're probably going to have some very good reasons to modify the site standard in this case!
