The session timeout is reset every time the user
visits a page. The default is 20 mins. If you set the
timeout to 10 mins the user has 10 mins to visit
another page or refresh the current one before the
timeout. To display the time remaining you would have
to use something on the client side, on the server
side it will always be 10 minutes.

To end a session before it's timed out you can call
Session.Abandon() on the server.
