    I have a windows 7 desktop at the office which I leave on so I can remotely connect to it (at home) via VPN. Problem is, after the remote session my Win 7 Desktop logs off, which I find annoying since I leave open documents as is for my work the next day. How can I disable this feature? I don't have this problem with Win XP :(

    how are you exiting the RDP? Are you logging off the remote machine, or just closing the RDP?

    in the rdp computer just hit start > log off, that should cure it. when you just close the rdp, you are still logged on; however, when it times out (xx amount of time after last input) it sounds like it's kicking you off.

    Also, are you the only one with access to this box?

    You can use the Task Manager (when logged in locally) and log off the user that is disconnected

    If I log off, it will still close the documents that I've opened when I'm remotely connected, right? That's what I don't want to happen. Yes, I'm the only one who can access the box.

    By RDP, I meant I'm using windows' MSTSC (after VPN) to connect to my computer at the office.
