Change log-off time in server 2008

I'm running HP thin clients in our classrooms to connect to our fileserver (which has the domain shares, our grading program, and microsoft office)  We are connecting with RDP and it works great except that if the user forgets to log-off the server locks the account and nobody else--including the administrator can get it without doing a force restart.

How can I change from the account lock to log-off.  Also I would like to set the inactivity time to 5 minutes.  How can that be set?

You do it in Terminal Services Configuration on the RDP_TCP properties. Open the Sessions tab and override user settings. You'd want to configure "End a disconnected session" and "idle session limit" (just in case. End the session instead of disconnecting it.

Also, Windows 2008 Server lockouts from the Desktop as well so could be this settings as well check these too
