For apllication pool the default Idle Timeout setting on the Performance Tab is 20 minutes. I am running a thread from ASP.NET which gets aborted after 20 minutes. I just need to understand how IIS handles Idle Timeout as the Thread is still running then
why IIS treats it as Idle. Is there any other way to keep the thread running without changing this IIS settting. I mean some specific action that Thread can do so IIS does not treat it as Idle

I believe you can override this default time out setting through a Web.config key. I'm not sure what it is off the top of my head though. Usually when it times out and goes idle, the session state is dumped.
Now if the process is shutting down, this is a setting on the application pool.
