Scanning to a local computer with HP networked scanner (session problem)

Hi
I have networked my All in One HP device. The idea was to scan to my local home server through a wireless network. I want the scanner to scan to one of the shared drives available to all home users. The scanning is done through an interface on a device.
I use a Win remote desktop to connect to a server.
Drivers and software have been installed on a server and everything works fine as long as there is a RDP session alive. As soon as I disconnect the session (not log off) the scanning doesn't work.
I'm wondering if there is any solution as I want to be able to scan without having any computer on (apart from a server) so I can be able to access files at later time.

In such cases you usually let the Server log in automatically. You can use Autologon (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963905) to set up an "always-on" session.
