You cannot disable it, but you can increase this value, if necessary. Please follow the procedure below:

1- Open the "<web_client_install_dir>\apache-tomcat\webapps\deui\common\scripts\config.js" file. 


2- Search for the "idle:20" string:

-----------------------------------------------
.constant('System', {autoRefreshInterval:20000,defaultAlias:'DEFAULT',devMode:false,mock:false,mockApiPath:'../test/data',apiPath:'/dewebui/api',buildNo:'local',server:'localhost',port:7500,integSrv:'https://localhost:8443/dewebui',idle:20,timeout:5,idleInterval:10,installedtime:1490292998797,version:'12.0.01.00-1548',pages:{login:'../login/#/',index:'../main/#/dashboard',admin:'../main/#/conn',documentation:'https://docops.ca.com/display/WLADEWEB/CA+Workload+Automation+DE+Web+Client+-+Home'}})
-----------------------------------------------


3- Replace the value with a higher one of your choice. (i.e: idle:360) :

-----------------------------------------------
.constant('System', {autoRefreshInterval:20000,defaultAlias:'DEFAULT',devMode:false,mock:false,mockApiPath:'../test/data',apiPath:'/dewebui/api',buildNo:'local',server:'localhost',port:7500,integSrv:'https://localhost:8443/dewebui',idle:360,timeout:5,idleInterval:10,installedtime:1490292998797,version:'12.0.01.00-1548',pages:{login:'../login/#/',index:'../main/#/dashboard',admin:'../main/#/conn',documentation:'https://docops.ca.com/display/WLADEWEB/CA+Workload+Automation+DE+Web+Client+-+Home'}})
