I TSC into my server where I have our client software residing.  I get the software running and when I "log off user" it shuts my software down!  It says "log off user, keeps computer running at full power".  Is there a setting so that does not happen?  Do I have to keep remoted in all the time to keep the program running?  URGENT!!!

    If you select Log Off then all the running applications will exit. If you Disconnect by closing the window, then the applications will remain running.

    Ok, but will that do something to my sessions?  Like "keep me logged on"??  I just don't want to be locked out or something like that.  What happens if I log back on to see running program?

    When you log back in you will see the system exactly how you left it. I do this all the time on a number if systems.

    Great!  Now will my sessions build up if I just keep exiting off and eventually lock me out?  If so, is there a setting to allow unlimited "close outs" or something of that sort?  If you do this all the time then I will just follow your lead.  Thanks....

    What you want it a product called firedaemon.  This allows you turn nearly any executable file into a service.  Then it runs no matter what.  they have a free trial and the software is cheap if you decide to but it.

    KerryG is correct.  There is nothing wrong with disconnecting from a TSC session instead of logging off.  I almost always disconnect instead of logging off and I haven't had any problems yet.
