A skill that is open until closed?

Hello, I would like to create a skill that remains active/open until the user closes it or after a long idle time of several minutes. How can I do this with Mycroft? Is there a config setting that allows me to define this?

Does this mean it is waiting for a user response, or something else?

Hi, here is the background. I use a skill to interact with a Rasa chatbot. I need to keep the session with this bot open until the user decides to close it or several minutes passed - the user may interact with the bot in the meantime. Currently, the session is lost after some idle time and I have to reopen the skill that connects me to the Rasa bot. Therefore, I thought its possible to adjust the “active/open” time window in the skill settings.
