You have to do this using JavaScript on the client side... as the servlet has no control over the page once it is presented to the user's browser.

Well,
  Are you displaying the HTML via a Servlet (out.print) or JSPs?

  I can write a JavaScript that will start a timer.. and after 60 seconds... it will expire and refresh the page (the servlet should handle providing the new data).. the timer will only expire if the page still exists (i.e. next or any button wasn't pressed for that time)

Is that what you want?

Using JavaScript:
<head>
<script language="JavaScript"><!--
function executeTimer() {
if (document.images)
    location.reload(true); // forces a reload from the server
else
    location.href = location.href;  // just reloads the page
}
//--></script>

</head>

<body onLoad="tID = setTimeout('executeTimer()',1000*60)"

OR you can try this meta refresh:
Assuming the name of your servlet/jsp is:
myPage.jsp
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="60 ;url=myPage.jsp">
