I have a Dell E6400 laptop and a Dell Optiplex 780 destop both running Windows 7 wit service pack 1 installed. My issues is that when I RDP to my desktop when I disconnect from the desktop my desktop account is logged off. Then when I iether reconnect via RDP or directly log on all of my applications that were running are obviously terminated. Are there any settings that will prohibit the logoff on RDP disconnect? By the way logoff occurs after about 5 minutes or so after the disconnect. If I disconnect and reconnect within the 5 minutes all my applications are still running.
