No, not a time limit.

If you turn the car off, the cruise control set speed is reset.

If your speed drops below 24mph, the cruise control set speed is reset.

There is another place that the cruise control will forget it's previously
set speed.  I don't recall the varience, but it's something like if
your cruising speed drops Xmph below your previously set speed (I think
it's 15mph below your set speed, but I don't recall the speed.)

Thanks Michelle. You saved me and a Toyota tech some time.

I don't like that setup, then again there are many things in life I don't
like but live with it.

    You are correct.  My T100 is like that.  If my current speed falls
below 20 MPH of my previous set speed it would also be reset.  My El
Camino only worked above 35 mph so it sounds like a Toyota thing.  The
one thing I hated about my El Camino cruise control was the fact that
it would actually increase the speed about 3 to 4 mph above the set
speed before settling down.  They Toy cruise control just plain kicked
in smoothly.
