Server 2012 Multipoint - Group Policy

I currently do not have Active Directory installed on my stand alone server with no domain. I am wanting to know: (I have 13 current users)

1 - Is there a way to have disconnected and idle users logged off automatically?
2 - I tried to access group policy on the current configuration and a notification appeared that said I need to be the domain admin in order to access GP. Can I install AD on multipoint stand alone?
3 - If so, How?
4 - How do I limit the hours a user can be logged on?

Thanks,
Russ

I'm not AS familiar with Multipoint, but have you tried this?

To specify timeout and reconnection settings for a remote session
On the RD Session Host server, open Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration. To open Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, point to Remote Desktop Services, and then click Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration.

Under Connections, right-click the name of the connection, and then click Properties.

In the Properties dialog box for the connection, on the Sessions tab, select the following options as necessary:

Select the Override user settings check box, and then set timeout settings for End a disconnected session, Active session limit, and Idle session limit.

Select the Override user settings check box, and then select one of the following reconnection settings: Disconnect from session or End session.

I apologize then my friend, but not being as familiar with Multipoint I'll have to defer to anyone who is a true expert on it.  Sorry.
