Java function to log out Windows 2000/XP client

Is there a java function that would log out the currently logged in user on a Windows XP Pro or Windows 2000 Pro client? The reason I ask is that I have a Windows 2003 AD network and I have installed a Pearsons Digital Learning media server that elementary school kids access from their workstations. The application management tools appear to be written in Java.

When a student logs in and starts running the programs, after 30 minutes, the workstation logs itself out. This is not a crash to desktop and I never get a blue screen. There are no error or warning events in the system or applicaiton log near the time if the log out event.

The problem occurs even if the user that is logged in is a member of the domain admins group.

The media server itself has no error or warning events in the system and event logs near the time if the log out event.

I ran ping plots to each client and there are not drops in network connectivity when the event occurs.

I removed AV completely as a test and the logout still occurs.

It happens on both Windows XP SP2 (firewall disabled in AD) and Windows 2000 Pro.

It happens on a wide varity of different client hardwre.

Server utilization is minimal during the testing.

Port utilization of the switches involved in the testing is minimal.

The vendor (Pearson Digital Learning) is saying it is a hardware issue but I can not find anything that validates that claim.

You don't even have to be actively using the program. Just start the program and lst it sit, it logs out after about 30 minutes. If you have one client machine running or 5 client machines running and starting at the same time, it happens to all of them within a few seconds of each other at about the 30 minute mark.

So.. back to my question.. Is it possible for a Java VM to log off a Windows XP/2000 client?

Thanks,

Dave
