The basic method to do that is to run a task inbedded in a while (1) 
loop, to continuously scan the connected_players() (every 5 minutes would 
be good)  for people whose idle time is greater than 3600 seconds.  I'll 
leave the actual programming to you.. it's a fairly simple verb to write.

You may want to make it check some other things, like if the player is a 
wizard or is in a 'boot_exempt' property somewhere.
