SharePoint Online: Editing session has ended Message

If you are in Edit mode on a SharePoint site, you will see a message "Editing session has ended." if you remain idle on the page for about 5 minutes.

Editing session has ended - SharePoint

Being idle while editing causes the current session has end due to inactivity and makes the page available for others to edit.


    Edit: To edit the page, you click the Edit button, and the page is now checked out to you. As long as the page is open for editing, or checked out, no one else can edit it. The page is "locked" until changes are saved or discarded, or until the page is published. An exception is that if the page has no activity for 5 minutes, the editing session will time out and the page will be "unlocked."

You can read more about this on in the "Page lifecycle of a Modern SharePoint Page"
