How do I disconnect remote desktop user automatically after they close the session?

I have one use logging into a remote desktop to work in quickbooks.  I have quickbooks set to start up automatically when they log in, so the only way they can terminate the session is by hitting the close button i.e, the [x] at the top of the session.  They have no access to the Start/Log Off option so their sesion can not be terminated that way.

How can I set it up so when this one user only is disconnected their session is removed from terminal services immediately?

You could try a group policy
Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates
Windows Components/Terminal Services/Sessions
Set time limit for disconnected sessions Enabled

I have never tried it in Windows XP so give it a shot.

I actually found a 'Sessions' tab for the user under Active Directory and set the timeout there.

Cool.
