Page reloads on autopostback after wait

We have a strange problem affecting our asp.net (framework 1.1) site on some web servers.

On pages with controls that autopostback, if you wait about five to ten minutes (haven't narrowed down the exact timing, yet) on the page and then cause a postback, the page reloads like it lost viewstate.  Though, during the first five to ten minutes everything is ok--the page posts back fine.

This is not a session or authentication timeout because we have those both set to 30 minutes.

The site is not load balanced--in other words, all of your clicks are going to the same web server.

I can't find any similar issues via google so far.  Anyone else experience this or have any ideas?  Thanks.
