    Is there a way through AD that users can be auto logged off after a set time

    Yes, by setting logon times on user account objects and using the following
    GPO setting:

    \Computer Configuration\ Windows Settings\ Security Settings\ Local
    Policies\ Security Options\ Network Security: Force logoff when logon hours

    I guess I should have included this in the first post. The users do not have
    logon hours assigned to them, as they are in and out at all times of the day
    and night. My main problem is that users are staying logged on 2 & 3 days at
    a time. Is the GPO for "Force logoff when logon hours" only for users that
    have logon hours assigned to them?

    you could use the winexit screen saver, assign its use from GPO
    about the only way i have found to force log users off :)

    Thanks for the post Steve. I've already found out about the winexit src;
    however that doesn' really seem like very smart solution. ie. having to
    walk around to every PC on the domain and set up the winexit.src. If you
    know of any other way, that I could make a push out of a forced user logoff
    throught AD, that would be a lot simplier and less time comsuming.
    Thanks again.
