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.
If you want to shut down machine @ specific time then you have go for script and schedule the task.
