Anyxone is able to loghin anytime, if youw ant to see it that way ;-) But 
the system needs the ressources to make this happen before the timeout ;-)
It might also not be a CPU issue, but a bandwidth issue. If bandwidth is 
occupied by other users it may take a time for your packets to get thru.
In any case, you may want to lower the load for that machine or give it 
more "power" if you can. If you cannot login as root with ssh because it 
times out this also means that the others experience a less than optimal
