Just to add, in the Agent settings under the Portal you can set the Disable Timeout (agent-user-override-timeout in the XML). This obviously won't do anything if you use an On-Demand connection type, but assuming that you are using Always-On this will automatically re-enable the agent after the given timeout has expired.
