you can try:

(defun save-buffers-kill-emacs-when-idle (tmout)
  (interactive "nKill emacs when idle (seconds): ")
  (setq save-buffers-kill-emacs-when-idle-timer
        (run-with-idle-timer
          n tmout t
          (lambda ()
            (save-buffers-kill-emacs t))))

this sets the variable `save-buffers-kill-emacs-when-idle-timer'
which you can use to cancel the timer later, should you find your
computer again after galaing.
