Could anyone help me with some piece of javascript code? I need to create a client side javascript that will redirect to Logout.aspx  20 minutes after the current page was rendered.
And where do I have to call that javascript? On <body load=> ?

<body onload="setTimeout('yourfunction()',20000)">

And your function would go in the head like this:

<script type="text/javascript">
function yourfunction()
// any code you want to execute before logging them off

Thanks, but what about if there's a previous javascript function onload ? In my case, I already call another javascript function:

<SCRIPT language="javascript">
function SaveScroll()
    document.all.item('txtScroll').value = theBody.scrollTop
function SetScroll()
    theBody.scrollTop = document.all.item('txtScroll').value

<body id="theBody" onscroll="Javascript:SaveScroll()" onload="Javascript:SetScroll()">

Is there any other place where I could put "setTimeout('LogoutFunction()',20000)" ?

You can put any legal sequence of javascript instruction in the event invocation.  I removed the javascript: as it is unnecessary for events becaue they us assume javascript already:

<body id="theBody" onscroll="SaveScroll()"
