First - thank you for the great plugin it's been really helpful as an admin. I just have a quick question about Session Keeper... if the session warning is enabled with Bootstrap modal window and the session expires (for those that are not in the keep alive group) it pops up with the "session timed out" message. I'm finding that if the user doesn't close that window or click on the page they're staying logged in. Most just close their browser so I get problems when they come back with two logins.

There are no stupid questions. I write extensions for Joomla and there are parts of the CMS that I don't understand yet.
The login module is just one thing that uses keepalive. Any AJAX request will keep the session alive, so if you have a plugin or module that's making regular AJAX requests - those requests will keep the session active and prevent timeout. My plugin looks for the built-in keepalive method, but there are many ways to keep the session alive.
If you're familiar with developer tools in your browser, you could load up a page and watch the network tab to see what's communicating. When you know what's being communicated, you'll have the first step in determining if it's something that can be changed.

Appreciate that...one last question about the plugin just so I have a reference for how it should work. Assuming there's no keep-alive running...at the point that the session keeper modal popup times out and the "Logged out" message displays, if there is no keep alive running then the session should be terminated without the user clicking on anything.
