    I have a workstation that around 50 people use, and I would like to be able to start a script that will kickoff a timer, essentially logging them off after a certain interval.

    I can do most of that already, just wanted to know if anyone knows of a way to attach a script to a screen saver, or a more efficient way of doing this.

    The users are not administrators, so they won't have the option to force off the person before them.

    That probably would, and I also found this which I have already tested -

    Best part is that it is an MSI so I can push out through policy :D

    Now I just have to find out how to set this via Computer Configuration Instead of User Configuration :(

    It's key - I have a lot of people who will walk away and the next people that come along won't bother logging them off, they will just start doing stuff which is a pain for logging and access control
