    There're these idle/forced disconnect features in CP. Dunno how many users you imagine to get your logout pop-up, I can imagine pretty much none – since popups are blocked by any decent browser out there.

    What about setting the idle-time out to 5 minutes ?
    If users come back within 5 minutes, they have access to the net because their device is still on the "permitted list".
    If they come in later then 5 minutes, they WILL have the auth page again.

    Their is no real need to have people being logout out by themselves. Every minute the list with logged in clients is purged if needed (timed out).
    You control the time out.

    You can see (test) so by watching the portal log and captive portal status page.
