I have taken away all terminal server timeouts in group policy and under the config of terminal server, however I had a connection on for 5 days and it disconnected. I am trying to figure out what possible reasons could be causing the disconnection .. any ideas?

aight mate heres a couple of things that might help

Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Terminal Services\Keep-Alive Connections

Specifies whether persistent connections are allowed.   After a terminal server client loses the connection to a terminal server, the session on the terminal server might remain active instead of changing to a disconnected state, even if the client is physically disconnected from the terminal server. If the client logs on to the same terminal server again, a new session might be established (if Terminal Services is configured to allow multiple sessions), and the original session might still be active.   You can use this setting to enable keep-alive connections and ensure that the session state is consistent with the client state. By default, keep-alive connections are disabled.   To configure keep-alive connections, enable the setting and set the Keep-alive interval. The keep-alive interval determines how often, in minutes, the server checks the session state.   If the status is set to Enabled, keep-alive connections are enabled.   If the status is set to Disabled, the default behavior is enforced.   If the status is set to Not Configured, keep-alive connections remain disabled by default.

Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Terminal Services\Automatic reconnection

Specifies whether to allow Remote Desktop Connection clients to automatically reconnect to Terminal Services sessions if their network link is temporarily lost. By default, a maximum  of twenty reconnection attempts are made at five second intervals.   If the status is set to Enabled, automatic reconnection is attempted for all clients running Remote Desktop Connection whenever their network connection is lost.   If the status is set to Disabled, automatic reconnection of clients is prohibited.   If the status is set to Not Configured, automatic reconnection is not specified at the  Group Policy level. However, users can configure automatic reconnection using the Reconnect if connection is dropped checkbox on the Experience tab in Remote Desktop Connection.

Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Terminal Services\Sessions\Sets a time limit for active Terminal Services sessions

Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Terminal Services\Sessions\Sets a time limit for active but idle Terminal Services sessions

Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Terminal Services\Sessions\Terminate session when time limits are reached
