Users connections remain active after closing Citrix apps.

In my CITRIX  Farm, users close their applications but it's still appears active in the access management console (it may remain for days). and when user opens an application a new window opens with another connection but same session id.
note: if web interface page is closed while this application is still running, the session remains active. but if its logged off, it will close correctly.
Can anyone help me in this ??

Does this only occure when users start applications by using webinterface or also using program neighourhood?

Are all servers up to date?

DarITUserAuthor Commented:

This is not the root of the problem, but one thing you can do that may help is configure automated log-outs of disconnected or idle citrix sessions.  Mine is set to end a disconnected session after 1 hour, and end an idle session after 1 day.  This is best done by opening Terminal Services Config --> Connections--> ICAtcp --> properties -->Sessions Tab.  It should be set on each server.
As for the hanging log-off issue, are these separate published apps, or is it a published desktop situation?  Does the same issue occur in both of those ways of publishing, or only when using published apps?

Here is a link to a really good post describing some logging techniques that might help you determine the root cause.  The post is about slow loggons, but the logging may still help you figure it out.

we use only published Apps, no desktop is published at all. so users always close the IE page (web interface) and when finishing the application, they simply close it (from the cross mostly).
this action don't make users appear in disconnected mode at all.

so its useless to set this options cause I've already tried it and set the disconnection time for 10 minutes as a test.
 but i tried it with my account (as a user) and i disconnected from an application but i stayed like this for more than 2 hours not 10 minutes as i configured.

And is the problem occurring equally in all published apps, or bigger problem for certain published apps?

DarITUserAuthor Commented:
i don't have a problem at the log on time at all.
but i can get use of this article in another issue concerning drive remapping at log on, where i have some applications don't remappe the C drive from the user disk (C$ Client, don't appear in the published application) one of this applications is Adobe Acrobat.

For this issue, it occure equally in all published applications.

Maybe you can try a repair of the software and then reapply the citrix rollup

WakaMangCommented:
Can you also try to create a new published app and test if the problem als occurs on an new published app?
