I need to add something to a group policy that will log the user off of the computer after they are idle for 10 minutes or so. It doesn't matter if it's a Computer Policy or a User Policy. Does anyone know how to do this? If you can't do it through a group policy, is there another way that it can be done? Thanks.

Hi,

If this is user is logged in using Terminal Server, then you can set idle time log off. If they log in "normally", then you don't have a log off idle time policy.. I don't believe there is any way to do this..

You can distribute winexit.scr to your machines and set it as a screensaver using group policy. winexit.scr is part of the Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools.
