We have many of users on our servers. if everyone forget their sessions, it can make notable load.
And, of course, I will reattach me session, but I'm not sure others will.

Sounds to me like reusing your screen sessions would be a more elegant way to go.

We want to use screen on our production servers.
But we have one point as disadvantage. After some time, count of forgotten detached screen session will increase, and we will have higher load on servers.

I have presumption, that command "idle 21600 quit" will help me. But, as I see, it works only on attached session.

So, it would be very useful, to make "idle" command to work on deattached sessions.
