Setting your timeout period for Codespaces

You can set your default timeout for Codespaces in your personal settings page.

代码空间可用于使用 GitHub Team 或 GitHub Enterprise Cloud 的组织。 更多信息请参阅“GitHub 的产品”。

A codespace will stop running after a period of inactivity. You can specify the length of this timeout period. The updated setting will apply to any newly created codespace.

Warning: Codespaces are billed per minute. If you are not actively using a codespace but the codespace has not yet timed out, you are still billed for the time that the codespace is running. For more information, see "About billing for Codespaces."
