Ok, let's explain the situation more fully:

Basically I have a session controlled login system for users to my site. If
they manually log-out, close the browser or move away from the site the
variables that are needed for them to view the 'members area' are unset,
hence they are logged out.  What I want to do is disable people logging
into the same user account at the same time.  Therefore when they log in I
set a value in the database to say the user account is locked.  If they
manually log out then this value is again changed to unlock the account.
However, if they close the browser or leave the site I can't figure out a
way to change the value in the database to unlock the account.

Any suggestions?
