Remote Desktop Session Timeout

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
When using Remote Desktop Connection to connect to our W2008 Terminal Services Server, sessions time out after about 5 minutes of inactivity, and the remote user has to re-enter their Windows credentials.  Is there a way of disabling this, so that the user can remain logged-in when idle?
