Default Allow non-admin to log off currently logged on user


Is anyone aware of a setting that would grant a non-admin user the right to
log off the currently logged on user at the console? For example, I'm the
admin and lock my computer and walk away. If I'm gone for a few hours and a
non-admin user needs to use my computer, that user won't be able to log me
off since only an admin can log off the currently logged on user. I checked
all the settings under the local security GPO and didn't see anything
obvious for this.

This is for Windows XP SP3 in a workgroup. I can't enable fast user
switching (which would solve this whole issue) because I'm using TrueCrypt
to encrypt the system partition.

Thank you.
