I have a Windows 7 Ultimate (x86) PC with the latest updates & SP. I would like to know of a program (Native / 3rd party) which shuts down the PC if:
1. No user has logged in and
2. PC is idle for a certain amount of time
Please note that both the conditions above should be met together. I know there are such programs available (have them on my office workstations).

The requirement that no user is logged in means it would have to be coded as a service. That cuts down quite a bit on freeware as it's more difficult to program and debug code written as a service(generally speaking.)
I searched around and found plenty of auto shutdown, but none mentioned anything about not being logged in.
You could try posting a custom request on this forum:
but please read the rules first.
Often it will be that readers will know of a freeware that already does it. Sometimes a coder will whip something together for free if it's not too difficult.
edit: skwire wrote one that may do the job for you called boot snooze. It has auto login. Don't know if it fits the bill. It's on this page:
