There is a program called autolog, which is available with the debian distribution.

Source can be found at ftp.debian.org, or any debian mirror, in the admin section.

ie:  ftp://ftp.debian.org/pub/debian/stable/source/admin/autolog_0.34.orig.tar.gz

bash, csh, tcsh have a shell variable autologout.
   set autologout=60
or
   autologout=60

in /etc/csh.cshrc, /etc/.profile
