Login after using remote desktop

Is there any way I can get Windows to log back into the account that was being used before the computer was accessed using remote desktop?  Basically, I don't want the welcome screen to come up after I log out of remote desktop.

In user accounts in Control Panel, select Change the way users log on and off, and untick use Welcome Screen.

If your looking for it to always stay logged in, dump Remote Desktop and use TightVNC www.tightvnc.com

If I disable the welcome screen, it does the same thing only it has the Login dialog instead of the welcome screen.

I'll take a look at that TightVNC remote desktop program you posted.

TightVNC isn't quite as good as remote desktop.  But it doesn't log the user out, and that's what I wanted.  Thanks!
