XF 1.2 Ever present admin: Is there a way to extend my "online" timeout?

I wondered if there's a way to extend my "online" timeout (separately from everyone else) so my staff online entry hangs around for longer after my activity has stopped?

Or maybe tweak it on a usergroup basis for admins/mods?

Rather than have staff showing online for longer in the Staff Block, why not consider removing the block altogether?

Members still be able to find out who are Staff from the Members tab (and a reminder in the Site News will point this out to anyone who hasn't found this, such as Tapatalk users who have finally found the full site ;) )

This way, it's not glaringly obvious which staff are currently online and possibly more importantly, which staff aren't on the site.

Yeah, that might be a better approach - remove the staff online block. I'll see how it goes now TT is not artificially keeping staff logged in. (y)
