Hello Experts

Any example would be really appreciated. please point me to the right direction.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I use the Group Policy - Computer Config->Admin Templates->Windows Components->Terminal Services->Terminal Server->Session Time Limits. I set "Set time limit for disconnected sessions" to 1 hour, Terminate session when time limits are reached to Enabled. That should automatically log them out without scripting it.

I have used psshutdown in the past to log off users who are no longer at their computers. The only problem with this is that there is no real way to tell if someone is just working really late or if their computer is idle.


I would suggest using the psshutdown with the -o and -m switches.
