I am getting ready to mash in, and then leave for at least an hour and a half.

Can there be any negative effects to doing this? I could easily be gone for 2 hours. I'm still new to AG and appreciate any quick responses, as I will be mashing in in about ten minutes, and plan to leave immediately..

Thanks!

Nope you're fine. You will probably have higher efficiency too.

Oh and wrap it up good to try and maintain the mash temp while you're gone.

I normally do a 90 minute mash. Extended mashes have diminishing returns.

sure its no problem. Besides when you mash cool like in the 140's to get high attenuation its common to mash for 90 minutes to assure complete conversion.
