Working in Off-Line mode to free up a license

We are currently running short on EPDM licenses. This is mainly because people sign in and then just stay signed in all day weather they need access or not. I have been playing around with having people use the "Work Off-Line" mode in EPDM in order to free up the licenses until they need them. In off line mode, users can still edit the files they have checked out, then when its time to check them in they can revert back to the "Work On-Line" mode.


Although this seems like a good short term solution, I am noticing that when certain people go into Off-Line mode the license is released immediately but other people do the same thing and they retain the license.


Does anyone have any incite as to why this would happen? Or a better solution to free up the license files when they are not in use. FYI I do have it to auto log off after 15 minutes of inactivity but this does not seem to work well as I rarely see people get logged off.
