Windows 7: Limit idle time of switched users

Limit idle time of switched users

Dose anyone have an idea on how to log out users that are idle on Windows 7?

I work for a company that has computers in general areas, anyone can walk up and login and use it for business. Many of my users don't log off and later when they change their password these machines lock out their AD accounts. I was thinking that we could use the group policies that are used for terminal services to log out after being idle for x amount of time.

aaronchristenon that is a great question and I don't have the answer but I will be watching. Kind of like a automatic log out after a set amount of time.
