There are two options you can choose for the timeout, either by Daily Quota or Per-session Time Limit. If you choose Daily Quota, meaning the quota is calculated based on daily basic and once the limit is hit, the user will only able to login to the computer on the next day when the quota is reset. If the user attempt to login to the computer again within the same day, it will force him/her to auto logoff or restart the computer upon 30 seconds of login and below is the message that will be displayed when he/she attempt to login again once the limit is hit.
