Automatically close browser if inactive for a certain time

I'm creating a kiosk type terminal. It'll be using an active desktop to display a graphic. When the graphic is clicked on it'll open a browser window so the user will be able to view a web site. What I want to be able to do is close the browser window if it's been inactive for 10 or 15 minutes. This will allow the active desktop to display again. Anyone know how I could do that? I was thinking maybe there's an appliance I could put in the startup of XP?
