[AG-TECH] Is there a Venue Client time out?

	I tend to keep our AG 2.4 node 'parked' in the lobby of our venue 
server, so I can tell if someone 'drops by'. I've been able to do that 
for an indefinite amount of time, so I wonder if something has changed 
for 3.x. I'd be interested to know, and also would like to be able to do 
the same for the 3.x client when that's in use more often and I want to 
'park' it in the same way.
