My bet is that you are only setting the timeout but not
ever checking to see whether the socket has timed out. If
you want to only read from the socket until it times out,
you need to add that to your logic. Try something like

socket_set_timeout($fp, $timeout_seconds);

# Get socket status
$socket_status = socket_get_status($fp);

# Read response up to 128 bytes at a time until EOF or
socket times out
while(!feof($fp) && !$socket_status["timed_out"])
     $response .= fgets($fp, "128");
     $socket_status = socket_get_status($fp);
