Session keeps timing out when debugging iis7

I found out why this is happening.

In IIS7 on the Application Pool, there are ping settings that will kill a session if it gets not response. This is great for production as it keeps iis running slim but when debugging in Visual Studio and stopping on a breakpoint that is nasty.

I found an article that explains how to disable the ping or extend the timeout period.
