Default Auto log off

I can't for the life of me find the policy setting that will auto log off a user after a set time of inactivity. All our PC's are XP Pro. We don't have Active Directory. Yet. We use Novell. But somewhere there has to be a way to do this. We have an enforced policy of password protected screen savers, but for some reason when corporate pushes out updates, they don't always work if the user is still logged on. So I want to be able to automatically kick them off. I found the setting for log off after login horus expire. Is this the same thing? Or does it just keep them from logging on at non-normal times?
Change the world. Of one person. Today.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the ain't your variables, it's your constant.
