Response.Expires is the time in minutes before the page expires. This deals
with cache.
Session.Timeout is the time in minutes the session can be idle before the
server times out automatically. The default is 20 minutes.

Response.Expires sets the HTTP Expires header. This is set to a date and
time. The client browser uses this to determine when a page stored in the
client cache has expired, and should be retrieved afresh from the server.

Session.Timeout refers to how long (in minutes) an ASP session should be
"kept alive" by the server in the face of no new incoming requests from the
client.
