Emacs 24 Gnus IMAP Keep Alive to Prevent Disconnect?

Hey all:

I have noticed that an idle IMAP connection in Gnus on my system has a
tendency to hang without resolution. I have a tls stream with a
logout-timeout set to 1.0. However, this doesn't seem to actually keep
the connection alive or reset the connection when it should. I read in
the GnusNiftyTricks in the EmacsWiki about a means of keeping the IMAP
connection alive, but the notes at the bottom indicate that Emacs 24,
which I am using, has this built in. 

What should I be doing to prevent Gnus from hanging with an IMAP
connection that appears connected but that may have been disconnected?
I'd prefer a transparent reconnection or something like that if
