You can look here:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\WinStations\RDP-Tcp

It looks like this is the location to make the adjustment, but do you know what entry to add to change idle timeout time to about 1 hour for example?

I don't know what timeout do you need.
If you want to increase timeout before disconnect session, I think, it'll be MaxIdleTime.
O! I have another idea. You can just use gpedit.msc and change timeout there. :)

In windows 2003 server the setting is called "Idle session limit", I simply change it 1 hour.  I'll try those suggestions and let you know if works in the meantime.
