Does downloading and installing sage remove idle timeout for large computations?

I'm an undergraduate student trying to do large computations in sage that would likely take a few days to a week. I understand that free members on sage cloud have an idle timeout period of around 1 hour. Does the same apply if I were to download sage onto my windows computer using a virtual machine? Do I have to modify any of the settings?

As a GNU/Linux user, i did not try with the virtualbox, however, i frequently do some computations that last about one week (up to 4 months actually), so the general answer is 'yes' (more precisely i use the sage command line and run the computations on a allways-on remote computer via ssh (and screen)).

Hence, it is worth a try on virtualbox, If you do this , please do not hesitate to report any success or failure here !
