I don't know about vbscript, but you can do this with Group Policy.

Hit start --> run --> GPEDIT.MSC

Navigate to:

Computer Configuration --> Administrative Templates --> Terminal Services --> Sessions

All of the options for time limits on Remote desktop are listed there.  You can also set the session limits in Active Directory if this computer is a member of an AD domain.

VBS script.....put the .vbs file in the "%alluserprofile%\start menu\programs\startup" on the terminal server.
***********************************************************************************************************
strlogoff = "cmd /c logoff.exe"
Wscript.Sleep(7200000)
Wscript.Echo "Your remote session limit has been reached, please save your work.  You will be logged off in 2 minutes"
Wscript.Sleep(120000)
set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
wshShell.run strlogoff
