Default Can I "time limit" user sessions on Windows XP Pro?

Can I "time limit" user sessions on Windows XP Pro?

10 kids per computer
I need to enforce time-share for games
each kid has own "limited" account in XP Pro

I don't know of a utility where a session times-out after 15 minutes and automatically renews in say... 2 hours.

Thanks.

that's an internet connection timer, he is looking for a way to have someone automatically logged off after a certain period of time has elapsed.

You can use one of Bardon Data Systems wares... they offer either WinU or Full Control, depending on your needs. I've used both and both will do what you want.
