Inactivity and timeout

Is it possible to have the course "timeout" and kick you back to the LMS when a student have been passive for a period of time?

We use SCORMcloud to host our courses and they have a built-in time tracker that shows us how much time they've spent on a course. Sometimes a student opens up the course and they won't exit it until they are done with it, resulting in sessions often longer than ~50 hours. They didn't spend that time on the course, just a couple of minutes here and there.

I've asked Rustici Software about this but there is nothing SCORMcloud can do. However, I've been told some of their customers use a "built-in" function in their authoring tool to have the course exit upon a time limit when idleing.
