Windows NT does not provide the ability to force a user to log off a computer after a period of inactivity by default.

You can add this capability programmatically to Windows NT with a screen saver that calls the ExitWindowsEx API. Third-party application vendors may provide a forced logoff solution, but it is not included with Windows NT.
