    User Time limit (kiosk style)
    I went to a hotel in Pairs and they have two imacs in their lobby. Anyone can walk up to them and log in by simply clicking the guest account with no password. But then it gives them 30 minutes to use the computer and all approved applications before it would automatically log them out, not saving any info. Then the next person can immediately log on and do the same. Is this a feature built into OSX or is this an application that is allowing this? How do I do this, as I will be setting up a kiosk iMac at my place of work? Thanks in advance!

    Specs:

    Our kiosks at work are PCs and they use WinU by Bardon Systems. That software is lock down good and you can dial in as much or as little use as you want. Unfortunately (as the name implies) it's a Windows application.
    No hum, no buzz, no problem.

    Yeah, I saw this running on a Mac tho and that is what I have at my work. But I will look into WinU and see if they have any companion Mac OSX products. Thanks.
