In Group Policy, navigate to:

Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Remote Desktop Services > Remote Desktop Session Host > Session Time Limits

Inside this location, there are numerous settings, such as "Set time limit for active but idle Remote Desktop Services sessions", which will force a logoff when the time limit expires.

Were you able to try out the group policy settings? Terminal Services wasn't mentioned in the post, but I noticed your reference in the tag. I use the same policies on my systems and it works well.

Good luck!
