in your /etc/ppp/options file, add:

# Idle after X seconds
idle X

one good site to find this kind of options, is the PPP-Howto :-)
http://www.linuxports.com/howto/ppp

and specifically:

Thanks for the reply. But this is when user has left the connection idle. What I want is whether the user is idle or not if he is connected on a dialup line for 60 minutes after 60 minutes his connection is terminated automatically.
