Session timing out in ASP.NET even though session timeout is not being met

I set the session timeout to a large number, because users were complaining that it would log them out in the middle of entering an article.

I was wondering how people were still getting logged out, and then I came across an article showing that the App Pool timeout can also cause this. Indeed, this value was set to 20 minutes, much less than the session timeout, and is a likely candidate for why people are still timing out.
