Is there a way to keep my apps running even if I disconnect the terminal services session on a 2000 AD server?

I have a 2000 Active Directory server with TS running in application server mode.  I connect to it with an XP Pro machine using Remote Desktop and run my applications. Is there a way to keep my apps running even if I disconnect the session so that when I reconnect, they are where I left them?   It is set to disconnect idle sessions after a certain amount of time and then I have to launch my apps again when I reconnect.

Under AD users and computers open your account properties and go to the sessions tab and set it up accordingly.
To enable your session to stay open and running until you end it by logging off:

1. Start -> Run -> MMC
2. Console -> Add/Remove Snap In
3. Select Terminal Services Configuration
4. Click add.
5. Select Connections
6. Right click RDP Select Properties
7. Go to the Sessions Tab
8. Select Override User Settings checkbox
9. Change the End a dissconected session to Never

Your apps will now run until you log off.

This is a server wide change and will affect all users that RDP to the machine.

Hope this helps,
