Windows SBS 2003 log off group policy

How do I setup group policy (in detail) on Windows SBS 2003 that will log off users from their local computers (within the network) after number of inactivity hours.
I know that I can apply log off screen saver from Windows Resource Kit Tools on each of the domain computers, but I have to do that on each individual user name.

If you want to do it by number of inactivity hours, then you must use the WinExit.scr Screen Saver... which CAN be configured by Group Policy.  http:Q_21566165.html

Here's another reference which is more specific to SBS:  http://msmvps.com/blogs/kwsupport/archive/2004/09/01/12709.aspx

Yes you will have to use a method like TechSoEasy suggests as there is no option built into windows to log off idle users (other than in Terminal Server Sessions)
