How do I limit the amount of time a domain user can be connected?

Lets say I want to limit them to 30 minutes, so after being logged in for 30 minutes they get booted

This is appliable via a group policy and the "Logon Hours" option within Active Directory > Account page of a user. See: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc787251(WS.10).aspx

No natively way that I know of to do that.  You can limit thier hours but not 30 minutes and then off.  I'll see if I can find a script that may help
Thanks

This can be done with kiosk add-in tools such as Windows SteadyState, or controlled centrally for terminal services with Group Policy, but they are correct, there is no native way of doing this. Features such as this are one of the big reasons many schools adopted Novell early on.
