NIST SP800-53 rev 4 AC-2 CE-5 for high systems requires inactivity log out.
CNSS!-1253 AC-2 CE-5 differs this setting to each site.

Typically, high systems will be at the top secret (DOE) level and these settings might not ever apply to these systems but the ability to set them should be included somewhere.
