RDS Session Limits Policy

This policy will log off any user who has left a session open for 8 hours with no input. This should cover most scenarios to allow people to disconnect and go home to continue working, but logoff their sessions if they just disconnected when they are finished working (ie before they go to sleep for estimated 8 hours).
