Ok, it might be your shell.  Bash, for example, has a variable called
TMOUT. Do the following command and see if it returns anything (if you are
using the bash shell):

echo $TMOUT

TMOUT  If  set  to a value greater than zero, the value is
              interpreted as the number of seconds  to  wait  for
              input  after issuing the primary prompt.  Bash ter
              minates after waiting for that number of seconds if
              input does not arrive.
