To enable disconnect after an idle timeout:
Start -> Enter
gpedit.msc into the "Search Programs and Files" entry box
- open Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Remote Desktop Services -> Remote Desktop Session Host -> -> Session Time Limits
- Click on "Set time limit for active but idle Remote Desktop Services Connection" and set the time limit to 20 minutes as per UC Berkeley's Physical Security page. Since 20 minutes is not an option, choose 30 minutes.
