Hello,

I would like to implement a policy at the container level that would force users to logoff say at 21:00. At the moment users are leaving the office without logging off the domain and i would like this behaviour to change. Is this possible?

Many thanks,

Alexis Crawford

Terminator
 
Users hogging computers? Kids staying on the Internet too long? With Terminator, you can restrict the amount of time users can spend on a PC. You can set the PC to automatically logout, reboot or shutdown at a specific time each day (eg. 5:30pm), or you can set it to logout, reboot or shutdown after a set period of time (eg. 60 minutes).  Simple to setup and run, Terminator is invisible to users - they won't even know it is running.
* Logout, Reboot or shutdown your PC at a specified time, or after an elapsed period of time
* Optional forced exit mode will force non-compliant applications to close
* Password protected
* Enable or disable automatic startup when Windows starts
* Shut down instances of Terminator
* Dynamic updating of settings when Terminator is already running
* Runs on Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP
