How can I prevent getting wins based on timeouts?

Turn off the switch labelled "Automatically claim victory when time runs out!" on your Daily Chess Settings Page & you will no longer automatically win when your opponent runs out of time; the game will simply keep going, assuming they do eventually move.

If your opponent doesn't make a move within 60 days, he or she will lose, regardless of the setting.  Also, the setting does not affect tournament games.
