IGEL OS is locked by a Citrix session left by the earlier user, any way to prevent this?

Hey everybody! My users are complaining about their Igel being locked by a session left by the earlier user. They connect to a Citrix farm. Sometimes a user leaves the Igel without logging out of the session, the session locks the Igel with a lock screen after being idle for a while. There should be an opportunity to “shift user”, but there is nothing. The user who want to use the abandoned Igel, have to pull the power cord. I understand that this is a Citrix problem, but are there are there any possibility in the Igel settings to drop an idle Citrix session after a certain time? 😬
