I installed timeoutd and adjusted the timeouts file in /etc to give
everyone 15 minutes before logging them off. Nothing happens though. I
checked ps ax and the timeoutd is listed, so i am wondering what did I
do wrong, or what do I have to do?

# /etc/timeouts: user login/idle/session time limits.  See timeouts(5).

# everyone is allowed unlimited logon, but 15 minutes idle time

4599 ?     Ss     0:00 /usr/sbin/timeoutd
