Can users end a Terminal Services session using log off?

I want to force the users to log off from a Terminal session using log off instead of clicking the cross mark on the top right hand corner to disconnect the session. Is there a way to hide the cross mark?
You can't do that with Windows 2000 Terminal Services, unfortunately. Since I imagine that you're trying to avoid having disconnected sessions lying around, you could edit the sessions tab for the protocol to end disconnected sessions after a few minutes to an hour.
