Is there a way to set session time outs in Terminal Services on a 2000 TS server?

Need to be able to set some time out settings of the logged on session so that if users don't close out properly that in will automatically log them out after a certain period of inactivity.

Sure, in Terminal services user setup you can adjust that. When to logoff a disconnected user, or close on idle.

On a Windows 2000 server with Terminal Services installed, each user's account can be configured for connection, disconnection, and idle time-out values. These settings can also be configured for all Terminal Server connections by using the Terminal Services Configuration snap-in.

The listed values for the connection, disconnection, and idle time-out values are:

    * Never
    * 1 minute
    * 5 minutes
    * 10 minutes
    * 15 minutes
    * 30 minutes
    * 1 hour
    * 2 hours
    * 3 hours
    * 1 day
    * 2 days

However, these are not the only valid time-out values. Administrators can specify other values by typing a value, followed by the word "minute," "hour," or "day."
