    Hello,

    I'm not sure if I'm putting this in the right forum. Here is what I need help on if it can be done. After using remote desktop you either click logoff or disconnect. When you select logoff the xp client I believe is at the Ctrl, Alt, Del screen. If you select disconnect I believe it's at the screen that says your computer is locked press Ctrl, Alt, Del to unlock. Is there a way maybe using a group policy to actually just release the desktop so it's not locked or logged off? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Tony

    Not sure, I'll look into it, in the meantine see if running this does the trick run at the command line on the remote computer, th

    tscon.exe 0 /dest:console

    or

    %windir%\System32\tscon.exe 0 /dest:console

    If so, maybe batch file or VBScript it

    Yes, that command did it... thanks!! Thought maybe there might be something in GP that would allow me to do it.

    Played around for a bit and I can't come up with anything else, best suggestion is to put that command into a batch file stick it in the Windows or System32 folder on each workstation then putting a shortcut to it somewhere, maybe add it to the default profile or all users desktop.

    Either that or try sticking it in a network share if deploying it to each workstation is too much trouble.
