Connection timeouts are down to the driver in question,

Normally TCP/IP will take a long time to notice a broken connection, as 
  there is nothing to send it a packet telling it that it wasn't recieved.

TCP/IP is based on the idea that packets may eventually get there, even 
if it takes 30 minutes.
