Customize expiration options

Title
Customize expiration options

Short, concise description of the idea
Enable users to specify when their sessions will expire or when a privacy screen will be displayed

Full description of the idea
I'm a new user, and use LJ as a private diary on my laptop and desktop. I often have both sessions open at once. I discovered that if I stop using the laptop for a while, when I come back to it several hours later, my session is still open and my entries are visible etc. The FAQs explain that sessions expire after 36 hours, I believe. I would like to be able to automatically log out after the amount of time I specify, so if (for example) I tell a classmate to go on my laptop to find a file or something, they won't see my journal. Or, instead of logging me out, after x amount of minutes or hours, LJ could display a blank "enter your password" page that would then get me back to the page I was viewing/working on. The default time could be "Never" so no existing users would be affected by this option.
