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

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....

we have many adins but i talked to them; no one had made any change; there are about 300 PC in the same AD bucket however only about 5 of them started behaving like this Sunday night

new development; when users are at home and the VPN into their work PC; if the RDP connection times out the PC logs them off and they loose all open docs; programs etc

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

the issue is only occurring in Vista and yes all the power options are set to high performance- never go to sleep or hibernate

"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 :)

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