After checking the suggestions of DennisHoward and cbmm, if you determine that the machine is really being logged off and there isn't an event saying that software is doing this on purpose, make sure your Windows licenses are activated.  Windows Vista and later log you off after one hour if they are not activated.

event viewer says nothing; the session is completely lost; the licenses are activated i just checked; no windows updates were pushed out on these PC's; no Group policy to log users off is enabled; i am so puzzled by this.

Thanks for all your help

ok just did another check at the event viewer; at midnight 12:00AM the log states "The Volume Shadow Copy service entered the running state." which probably means somehow the PC rebooted or Logged off current user....

yes we have timeout enabled however only 6 of these PC's are logging the users out and i have over 300 PC's total; when RDP session times out it logs the user off; this is not a normal behavior; i need to figure out why these users are getting logged off- kicked off the PC's

"Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"

is separate from sleep or hibernate

Hopefully this better understand the problem; i know i am not explaining too clearly :)

Thanks

it looks like this may be a Adito VPN issue; it only happens when the user is home and VPN into the work OC

so it looked like someone put an RDP GP timeout that expires all sessions to my workstation bucket; after removal of this GP it was resolved
