You could sort-of hack something together using meta-refresh directives
on the pages so that the browser knew to refresh the page just as the
server timed out the session, but you need to tell the browser
*something* in order for it even to request the page from the server.
HTTP is a pull technology, not a push technology; a browser has to ask
for content.
