Exit a course after 1 hour if there is no user activity

Has anyone found a way to make a course close after one or two hours if there is no activity?

Students leave courses open several hours or overnight, then return and finish a module, but when they submit the quiz results, they are kicked out of the module, and when they sign back they are returned to the slide where they were before they left the course unattended.

Does anyone have a workaround for this?

This is typical behavior for a LMS (for our LMS anyway), 

Our courses run in a separate window  and when the LMS times out in the background window, the front window with the course remains open.

So from a learner perspective everything looks normal, but anything a learner does after the LMS times out is actually not being saved.
