The MaxServicePointIdleTime property sets the maximum idle time that the ServicePointManager object assigns to the MaxIdleTime property when creating ServicePoint objects. Changes to this value affect only ServicePoint objects that are initialized after the value is changed.

After a ServicePoint object has been idle for the time specified in MaxIdleTime, it is eligible for garbage collection. A ServicePoint object is idle when the list of connections associated with the ServicePoint object is empty.
