Hello
We have just purchase an HP T5325 Thin client to connect by RDP to the terminal server. I have set up the connection to the server which all works , but I was expecting every time we restart the thin client in boots into the terminal server login screen?  The thin client  boots into HP thinpro control centre. This is where i can select the connection the the server

You need to setup the thin client as a "single purpose thin client" and disable the user interface.  
Switch to admin mode and go through the easy config wizard.  You'll see an option to set the intended use, select single purpose.  After that you'll see visual experience - set it to No UI.  Set it up to connect with rdp and you should be good to go.

I have been setting up an HP T5325 Thin Client which is running a Linux variant called ThinPro. As this was to be used to connect users to a terminal server, and I wanted to make it as simple as possible for them, I used the 'HP recommended' option of no desktop (as opposed to full desktop or kiosk view), and the terminal session loading up when the Thin Client is switched on.

The problem now is when I close a terminal session, I have a blank screen, and where I could previously right click and get a menu that allowed me to switch from user mode to administrator mode, this feature now does not exist. I need to know how to get back into administrator mode as I have not fully finished configuring it.
