I know, there's about a million threads in a similar vein, I'm just thrashing around in the dark here so if you can even just push me in the right direction, I would much appreciate it.
We have an IIS 6.0 server running on a VPS. There are 2 "application pools", the "DefaultAppPool" and "226634". The "226634" pool is where our website is. We have a couple different ASP things running (one is a KB/FAQ package, the other is just some
custom built ASP scripts for minor site maintenance). Both will kick out logged in users, sometimes if you login, it will just kick you out right away, other times you can log in and do stuff for 5-15 minutes before it kicks you out.
So I talked to the support people for the KB/FAQ package, they suggested maybe it was something about worker process recycling. So I looked at those settings in both pools, and they were stock defaults (to my knowledge)... So everything was unchecked.
I tried checking various options, and still no change in behaviour.
What can I do, where can I root out the cause of this problem? So far as I know, we never had this problem when we were using a regular shared-hosting solution but pretty much ever since we moved to a dedicated server (VPS).
Any help appreciated!

Use the http://support.microsoft.com/kb/332088 to turn on events for WP recycle, and see what is causing your WP to recycle (if anything) to confirm your problem.

One gotcha we see in shared hosting is the setting that turns off the application pool after being idle for 20 minutes. This setting is on the performance tab. Here is an article how to configure it. By default the value is 20 minutes.
