PHP4 sessions or self made sessions. If PHP4 there is an option in php.ini to set 
about how frequently the GC(garbage collector)
will be started. Otherwise if self made and using a DB for backend - add new field 
last_time , and on every page request do "Delete
from session_table where last_time<now() interval 60 min"; not sure for the query but 
that is the idea.

Best regards,
Andrey Hristov
