Is there a way to have a windows 7 pro machine log off after XX amount minutes of inactivity? Not interested in 3rd party tools. The solution must be native to windows 7 pro. If there is one.

Here is a native option for windows 7

Its not recommended though because users can lose a lot of data if they haven't saved and a forced logoff is initiated.

You would set this option up under the power options if you're using a non networked computer. If it's on a domain then you can set a GPO with the power options to turn the pc off after so many minutes of inactivity.
