I have over 200 users in an active directory domain.  I need to set the timeout properties on the session tab for each user in the AD so that all users are set the same.  How do I do that in a global step, instead of having to click on each user and make the change one at a time?

Get TsCmd.exe from http://www.somarsoft.com/ (in the Free Tools section).
Create a text file with the user names (one name per line), and save the following script as tstimeout.cmd (or whatever.cmd), adjust the settings at the beginning.
Try it with a list of test users first.

@echo off
setlocal
:: *** The text file with the user names to be processed:
set UserFile=
:: *** The name of the DC:
set DC=
:: *** The timeout settings:
set TimeoutConnection=
set TimeoutDisconnect=
set TimeoutIdle=

for /f %%a in ('type "%UserFile%"') do (
  tscmd %DC% "%%a" TimeoutConnection %TimeoutConnection%
  tscmd %DC% "%%a" TimeoutDisconnect %TimeoutDisconnect%
  tscmd %DC% "%%a" TimeoutIdle %TimeoutIdle%
)
