Terminal Services Configuration manager on Sessions tab, Override User settings grayed out . How to fix?

Ultimately what I'm trying to do is, when a user disconnects from the TS, I want to have the connection reset after 10 minutes.  On the Terminal Services Configuration Manager, on the Sessions tab, the first section for Override User settings is grayed out and set for 2 hours.

 I've checked the registry under HKLM\system\currentcontrolset\control\terminal server\winstations\RDP-Tcp\Maxdisconnecttime and a few other settings in there, i've change it manually and it still doesn't take effect.  

I'm wondering if there is something that is set to not allow this to be changed in the registry, there is no GPO in effect for the terminal services.

that means there is a group policy applied on that TS.
check what policies hit the TS using Rsop.msc or gpresult for resultant set of policies.
check comp config/admin templates/windows components/terminal services/session
it could be applied at domain or site or OU or could be local to that TS .
