  If you're authenticating users by RADIUS then you can have radius pass a
Session-Timeout reply item, which would set the user's session time in
seconds. Of course RADIUS would have to know not to authenticate the user
again without a new account or updating the current one. I believe you can
also set the WISPr-Session-Terminate-Time now to specify the actual time
they get bounced, but can't remember if I tested that.
  BTW, anyone know if there's a place one can go for a current list of 
RADIUS attributes for m0n0wall?
