Stop signing me out of the Teams admin center after a period of inactivity
If I access https://teams.admin.com and leave my session inactive for too long, I get completely signed out of my Microsoft 365 account and have to sign back in everywhere. I always lock my workstation when I leave my computer unattended so this doesn't provide me with any additional security. The Microsoft 365 Admin Center doesn't do this. Can we please at least have an option to disable this behavior?

Please change the Microsoft Teams admin center to behave like all other admin centers in Microsoft 365. When the Microsoft Teams admin center signs me out, I am signed out of ALL admin centers, which often results in losing what I was in the middle of (e.g., a few dozen mailboxes selected to do a quick bulk edit when using PowerShell would take more time).
Furthermore, my admin account password is very long and difficult to type in. It's taking too much time to type it in a few times an hour, particularly when I often get "Sorry, your sign-in timed out. Please sign in again." and need to type it in again, hopefully without errors. I know better, but it's really tempting to either make my password simpler or have the browser remember it. Then there are those times where I almost send my password in a group chat or meeting; I've seen coworkers actually do it and have to go through the hassle of changing the password and having me "sign them out of all sessions" (i.e., invalidate their refresh tokens), just to be on the safe side.
Still driving me crackers.
Please sort this out. The time out is ridiculously short!!! I've had to re-login twice today and it's only 10am.
The portal admin pages are going to pot, they get worse every week, design wise and silly bugs like this.
This has been really frustrating!

Should not even be a bug
How can 100K admins around the world tolerate such a basic mis-step?!
The page timeout, and show user "which account do you want to sign out off"
Clicking my credential, I am indeed signed out, so all other AZ/M365 admin centres stop until sign in occur again. So even the signout method doesn't make sense
I've got used to see that tab/page and know what to do to work around -
Hit a fav/bookmark to the https://admin.teams.microsoft.com/dashboard
Teams admin centre UI design is flawed in my view
Why the newest M365 child is worse than the others is disappointing
Azure (easily best/fastest) > Sharepoint > M365 > Teams
