I have been using Group policies in Active Directory to log users off the server at a certain time, however I would like to set up a system that will log them out after say 3 hours of inactivity.  I use a login/logoff script and was wondering if there was any way to adapt this to force the log out.

If you want to use a logout after about Three Hours, you can also use a third party utility available at

named ScreenPass.
