My coding skills aren't that good, so I won't add anything ;-) But I will wait for your addition of my suggestion before implementing it :-)

Thanks for your feedback,
I welcome any suggestions about the module.
I agree with you, adding such a counterdown clock is easy to implement and yet very useful... I hope i would find time for it later this week.
meanwhile, you are welcomed to add anything you want as far as you share it with us ;)..

This sounds like a great module - I've needed that on a previous site that I created. Would be good if you can add a countdown timer to warn the user if it will time-out before it actually times out. If I am, for example, on the site, and the phone rings, and currently busy filling out a huge form, I'd be mightily peeved off if the thing times out without warning.
1. If it is configurable
2. It is safe
nobody would object to the JS code in the module, and I think it would be simple to implement, perhaps just reset the session time-out counter every time activity is recorded on the site?
This would be a GREAT addition for someone who uses the e-Commerce module.
What do you think?

I wrote a module to allow administrators to specify a certain session timeout for each role in drupal site.
If the user stop interacting with site for the specified time or longer... the site will ask the user for his/here user name and password....
If any one is interested i can send the module to the list or otherwise upload it to cvs.
