Windows to automatically log off when Citrix session ends

We currently use Citrix receiver 3.2 Enterprise which I have managed to get functioning with Pass through authentication over an ICA file using Windows Embedded machine. At the moment, I have the ICA file on the desktop to launch our Citrix full desktop session. Is there a way to log off Windows using a script when the Citrix session ends. I know there a service called Receiver.exe so is there a way to kick off a script to log off windows when this exe terminates? Only problem is the Receiver.exe file does not start until the ICA file is started.

Thanks all.

I'm not sure about this but here are my 2 cents.. change the logon icon to execute a script i.e.
adjust as required.
--- citrix.ps1
start-process -wait <pathto ica> citrix logon
shutdown -l -t 0
---
citrix.vbs

Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
WshShell.Run "c:\progra~1\citrix\icacli~1\pn.exe /APP desktop", 1, True
Set WshShell = Nothing
shutdown -l -t 0
-----

Yes, this is fairly simple to do.  I answered this question before on this.  http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/System_Utilities/Remote_Access/Citrix/Q_27830944.html

Scroll down, and you'll see my vbscript to do exactly this.
