I assume this is in an Active Directory Environment?

If I interpret your question correctly -- you get disconnected 1 hour after you disconnect your session?
Look up your account in Active Directory Users and Computers, and look at the values under the Sessions tab, especially "End a disconnected session: <value>"

If you get disconnected after an hour of active use, look on the same tab under 'Active session limit: <value>' just below 'End a disconnected session'.

Those aren't the only places to check -- but that'd be the first place I'd look.

in the sessions tab "End a disconnected session - Never"

Active Session Limit "Never"

Idle Session Limit "Never"

When a session limit is reached or connection is broken "Disconnect from session"

I check the Group policy settings and RDP session is enabled to Set Time limit for disconnected sessions to 1 hour but it does not say anywhere to log the user off after rdp disconnection.

The 'time limit for disconnect sessions' is the amount of time after an rdp session is disconnected that terminal services or remote desktop will clean up that session.
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc753112%28WS.10%29.aspx
"You can use this policy setting to specify the maximum amount of time that a disconnected session is kept active on the server. By default, Terminal Services allows users to disconnect from a remote session without logging off and ending the session."

If your session is being cleaned up an hour after you disconnect from the server, that GPO you identified is likely the reason.
