I have a Cisco wireless lan controller 4402.  I am using multiple LWAP's supporting 4 seperate WLAN's.  One specific WLAN is using Layer 3 security Authentication.  My question is how can I set an idle timeout for that WLAN?

just a little more info.  I would like to set a timeout for access so the user will have to log back into the web authentication page.

I'm not sure if you can set this on a WLAN base.
The User Idle Timeout can be handled by the controller in the Controller tab (GUI interface) so when the client/user is idle without any communication with the LAP for the amount of time set as User Idle Timeout, the client is deauthenticated by the WLC. The client has to reauthenticate and reassociate to the WLC. It is used in situations where a client can drop out from its associated LAP without notifying the LAP. (This can occur if the battery goes dead on the client or the client walks away).

is there a way to disable that? Would a 0 value allow  unlimited timeout?  The issue I run into is I am using the WLAN against Windows NPS to allow authentication.  I can set a timeout value on NPS but I believe the User Idle or another setting is overriding it.

The value provided by a radius (in you case NPS) should override the default settings in the WLAN controller.
