Force logoff of all users on one computer after inactivity
Posted on 2007-10-04
I have 1 computer which is used for scanning, downloading pictures off digital camera and printing to a photo printer which all of my users log into with their own username and password. What I am trying to do is force a logoff of those users after a period of inactivity say 5 minutes, but right now I want this to only affect them when they are using this 1 computer not their own. I am running Active Directory in Windows 2003 Server environment and this computer is Windows XP Proffesional.
One solution that I looked at was running a winexit screensaver which forses a logoff. That works great except that each user when logging in has gets their own screensaver, so that wont work. I also tried controling this same screensaver via Group Policy by forceing to use this screensaver and setting up my own parameters, but the screensaver option is only available via "user configuration" and NOT "computer configuration" So I can not assign it to one computer just to a user, bug again I only want this screensaver to kick in when the users are using that 1 computer. This 1 computer is locating in its own Organizational Unit, so I can assign a policy to just that 1 computer.
Thanks in advance
