Is there a way to auto disconnect specific USB's devices after a precise amount of time via Registry or GPO ? or can this be scripted

After x amount of time the usb device gets disconected ,If that specific Usb is disconnected then re plugin it would reset the countdown timer back to a amout of time so it can be used again ...

I also researched and found a Microsoft utility called Devcon that manages devices :

DevCon (Devcon.exe), the Device Console, is a command-line tool that displays detailed information about devices on computers running Windows. You can use DevCon to enable, disable, install, configure, and remove devices.

I'm more concerned about the feasibility , can this be done & scripted if no gpo exists for such .... ?
