Not in CRE, but you can configure a timeout in Windows and lock the Window after a specific amount of time.

Thanks for the reply, Kurt. I occasionally have multiple employees using the POS system during the same shift, and rather than tapping the tiny "file" button and then the tiny "exit" button so that another employee can log in, I was seeing if there was a way to automatically log the employees out. Short of logging windows out, do you know of a good way to accomplish this?

I don't see a way to automatically log an employee out after a certain time of inactivity. I think the only way is for employees to use the cashier function and logout/login.

I figured it out! For some reason I missed it the first few times I looked, but if you go to Manager/Options, Set Up, Set Up Screen, And the Invoice Settings, there is a small box in the middle of the screen called "Idle Log Out" and all you have to do is type in the number of minutes of inactivity you want before logging out automatically.

Great news. Learned something. Sort of a strange place to put that function in the Invoice setting window.

Yes, I thought it was a strange place to put it as well. The manual for CRE isn't the most organized thing, either.
