Global Policy for Auto Logoff After xx Minutes Idle on Windows Server 2008 R2?

We already have screensaver locks after xx amount of idle time, but also would like an auto logoff after 30 minutes of idle time, preferably one global policy on our Windows 2008 R2 server that would apply to everyone.  Also, may be two different settings, but would like this auto logoff to happen both locally and when people log in remotely (especially the latter).  Looked online but didn't find anything very helpful.

On XP the usual method was using winexit.scr also see here.

AFAIK there is no 'built-in' way to do this for Win 7, best I can find is here, but I've never implemented this.

Remote desktop session time-outs can be configured using group policy.

You should also be aware that force logging off users is not really good practice due to the potential for data loss.

We found on Server 2008 R2 where you can set group policy for lockout and this way users don't lose any data.  Thanks.
