Is there a way in XP Pro to limit the time of day that a user can logon?

For example 'username' can only logon to the computer between 8 AM and 3PM.

Is there also a way to bump a user off, if they stay on past the time limit?

nope, but if you are running your own domain controller, you can do exactly what you are wanting to do. you can even allow logon but dis allow 'net access or printer access or whatever.

Is there a way to bump users off at a certain time, or to make the "Shutdown" command a schedualed event?

I dont know the specific group policy that does it, but there is one. Dont have time to look for it right now. Open up the group policy editor. You should be able to find it.

start > run > gpedit.msc
