The simple approach, QINACTITV(seconds), cannot be overridden.  You can
specify a timeout message queue, and have a program receive from that message
queue to take certain programmed actions.  Other than rolling your own, those
are about the only options.

I wrote a system to manage this, and it uses the QUSRJOBI API to find out
who's doing what, accessed control information to control jobs by user,
terminal, subsystem, etc.... and that seems to work out REALLY well.  You
might look into doing something like that.
