I'm looking for a way to close an inactive Chrome window automatically in Win7. Say I leave my browser open, I would want it to close automatically after say, 20 minutes.

I've looked into Chrome extensions, such as TabWrangler and IdleTabs which both closed tabs but didn't fully close the window.

Other utilities such as JCST require a hotkey press to close idle windows, which is useful, but not for my purposes.

In this question, 'Nick' recommends using the pskill utility in conjunction with the screensaver to kill the process when the screensaver activates. This makes sense to me but I have no idea how to get that to work. Would this be a valid solution? If so, how can I do this? Is there another way about it?

Thanks in advance!
