How do I get terminal server or citrix to automatically reset or logoff a user when they disconnect? Right now they just stay disconnected until I manually look at Terminal Services Manager and log them off.

I am using Citrix MetaFrame XP on a Windows 2000 Server.

The should be choosing log off rather than disconnect themselves, but I guess that is in a perfect world. <G>
You can change the defaults on the TS by going to:
administrative tools | Terminal services configuration | click on connections | in the right hand window right click on RDP-Tcp and choose properties | sessions | 2nd Override user settings "when session limit is reached or connection broken" | end session

Conrtol this through Group Policy. If you dont have this already, download the Group Policy Management Console from here. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=0A6D4C24-8CBD-4B35-9272-DD3CBFC81887&displaylang=en

Take a look at this site for managing Terminal Services via Group Policy.

Levi and RobWill are correct for Terminal Services session timeouts.  For Citrix sessions, you could open the green/yellow hammer icon on the ICA toolbar (or the Terminal Services Configuration tool) and edit the ica-tcp listener (instead of rdp-tcp -- unless all of your users are connecting via the Terminal Services/RDP client).  Change the disconnect timeout to whatever timeout you would like the users to have, to automatically log them out after that period.

If you're using Citrix, why not use the Citrix Management Console for administration?
