In Active Directory if a user forgets to shutdown their computer is there a time limit where the session will disconnect?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Active directory doesn't have sessions.  It isn't like an old-school terminal that you are "logged in" with.  Not Alin the way you are thinking in regard to the question as asked.

This doesn't really disconnect the session, but the Group Policy setting Interactive logon: Machine inactivity limit locks a user's machine after they've been inactive for the specified length of time.
By default they will stay logged into the workstation indefinitely, and Kerberos tickets will get renewed to maintain access to network resources. I have people who stay logged in for weeks at a time.
