auto logoff

To execute an arbitrary set of commands at a certain time, you could use
"at now + 1 minute" or "at now + 2 hours" or "at noon" and so forth (man
at).  Then at prompts you for what command to run.  I don't know what
command would work to exit a GNOME session.  "exit" and "logoff" are
shell built-ins, so they won't work.

Can someone complete the script with a command to log out of GNOME?
