Whether your logged back in or not is dependant on your program. Once
you are gone for over X minutes, your session file is deleted. So, even
though the cookie is still good, the session will not have any data.
What's usually done is to check for a certain session value, like
$_SESSION['logged_in'] and if it's present, then continue, otherwise
force the user to log back in again.
