Computer reboots after RDP-Sessions

We experience a problem on some Windows 7 Computers in our Domain. The computers reboot themselves as soon as the RDP-session to them is closed.

I've seen some posts to this problem in internet, but no solution... Is there any?

Please check the SCREEN SAVER or power option if there is set for REBOOT anywhere ?

You got windows 7 installation problem..... & if it is minor can be fixed  by overwriting windows 7.

Please explain more if all above is checked.

No, we have neither REBOOT in Screen Saver options nor anything of that kond in power options.

What makes you think we have windows 7 installation problem? Sorry, can't quite follow you.

We have a domain with about 800 Windows 7 Computers. The admins can remotely connect themselves on the clients and it works fine. But as soon as the session ends (without logout), the Windows 7 client reboots itself... As a result it is not possible to start a longrunning job and, the session and come back later...


Can you check.. windows EXPRESS update please?  ?

If it is windows system files problem.....EXPRESS update or Service pack can fix this problem....

Please give a try  if is genuine & not updated  ..  ?

check your user settings in Active Directory, on the "Sessions" tab, ensure the "End a disconnected session" is set for "Never" .

probably a services problem, you might want to check the 'Remote Desktop Services' and make sure that the settings for 'Recovery' is 'Take No Action' or 'Restart the Service'  ;)
