Hello all,

Hope all is okay.

I want to logoff workstations after a period of idle time. Is there a way I can run a script depending on idle time?

Please help.

Thanks in advance.

Don't know about logging them off, but you can lock the workstation very easily using the screen saver in XP so that they have to enter their username and password when they resume. Would that be an option?

Didn't think it was possible but guess what i found on the Super Highway :)

Here ya go, someone has created a batch file to run on all machines which configures this functionality for ya;

Take a look at this link

Lol, i looked at the batch file, someone had too much time on his/her hands, hehe :)

All these tools help us in the long run and fair play to them for posting it on the net for all to use.

Take it easy
