It will be very appreciated if Player idle-timeout is added to options. We do not think currently there is a way of changing player timeout permanently. Even, if the plugins have afk kick, disabled players are still kicked after 10 minutes. However, Idle Timeout is the default Aternos system that you cannot change.
Unfortunately, you cannot change this default Aternos system, Player-idle-timeout. This system is in place to ensure the resources available are used as efficiently as possible. If you are just afk, so the resources (ram, cpu cores etc.) can way better be used to run a server of someone who is actively playing and gets more joy out of the same resources. Because ram does not grow on trees, there has to be some management on this.
If non-zero, the players are kicked from the server if they are idle for more than lots of minutes. For your information, Player Idle-time is reset when the server receives one of the packets below:
- Click Window
- Enchant Item
- Update Sign
- Player Digging
- Player Block Placement
- Held Item Change
- Animation (swing arm)
- Entity Action
- Client Status
- Chat Message
- Use Entity

If you are not familiar with this Auto Afk Kicker, we are going to inform you what is it. You have to know that Auto Afk Kicker is a mod that allows you to avoid inactivity on your Forge server. Everything is automatic, you only need to put your preferences in the config file. However, you have to be careful, the kickTimer and the warnTimer do not add together.
