Within the core Joomla login module there's a choice for "Remember Me". Once the user chooses that option they stay drenched in before the click on the logout button. You are able to perform a few things if you would like customers to remain drenched in, both can be achieved having a template override.

First, create a copy of JOOMLA INSTALL/modules/mod_login/tmpl/default.php and put it in JOOMLA INSTALL/YOUR TEMPLATE/HTML/mod_login/default.php

Next, edit that new file. If you wish to default the remember me as checked look near line 48 and alter it to:

<input id="modlgn_remember" type="checkbox" name="remember" class="inputbox" value="yes" alt="Remember Me" checked />

Or if you would like customers to instantly stay drenched in without getting a choice to power it down, look near line 48 and alter it to:

<input id="modlgn_remember" type="hidden" name="remember" class="inputbox" value="yes" alt="Remember Me" checked />

Which should fix your condition.
