Set session to never expire in settings, and when remember_me is found false in login POST, set it to browser session expiry. Works only in Django 1+.

def login(request, *args, **kwargs):
    if request.method == 'POST':
        if not request.POST.get('remember_me', None):
            request.session.set_expiry(0)
    return auth_views.login(request, *args, **kwargs)

This snippet does not work correctly.

If the first login attempt was not successful wihtout checkbox remember_me, a second attempt is successful with checkbox remember_me - the session will be expire after you close your browser.
