Via group policy I have set the following group policy to auto log off users (this config is not set on the local policy of the terminal server)
Computer Config\Admin Templates\Windows Components\Terminal Services\Sessions
'Set Time limit for active but idle Terminal Services sessions' (Enabled) (2 hours)
'Set time limit for disconnected sessions' (Enabled)(1 Hours)

My clients connect via remote desktop.  My users seem to say they walk away and they are getting logged off.  I havent been able to determine how long that timeframe is.  My users arent timing it but I check the security logs for log on and log offs and it appears the group policy is logging them off correctly.  Does anyone know if there are other settings I have missed?
