Aol idle message timing out

Hey folks, have recently changed to Aol broadband. I have large downloads coming overnight and now find that download disconnects after 25 minutes with "idle message". How can I change or eliminate "idle message" disconnect on Aol? Can't seem to find settings for Aol. Hmmm

Might be a god idea to give AOL a phone call on this one [It's free] Because (1) Broadband should not time out, It's always on.

(2) Even if you where on dial-up it should not time out because your downloading and therefore the account is active. With AOL dial-up you can stay on-line 24/7 as long as your connection is active. The time-out should only come on if you leave your PC idle. j.
