Microsoft VPN disconnects exactly 8 hours after logon.

Dell desktop disconnects exactly 8 hours after loging on to Windows VPN. I have a laptop and it will stay connected until I disconnect. Both are running Windows XP Professional. Any ideas where I can look for this "Timer". Thanks

A few thoughts but none are terribly promising:
-if connected to a terminal session or remote desktop session through the VPN, the users profile in active directory, can be configured with idle and or active session time limits, on the sessions tab
-if power management is enabled on the network adapter (of the desktop machine) it could drop the connection, though doubtful it would be set to 8hrs. [  device manager | network adapters | right click on adapter -properties | power management | uncheck "allow the computer to turn of this device to save power"
-if you have a radius server controlling the VPN it can be set with policies
-in the Routing and Remote Access Server management console there are session limits which can be found under remote access policies. Right click on each policy (default is 2) and choose properties and then edit profile. They have no default limits but may have beens set, however they should affect all users
-the above assumes Windows VPN and client. If another system it can have it's own connection limits
