Remote Desktop Connection and IE sessions

I have an IE session running through my remote desktop session.   The IE session is running an application that is doing some data manipulation, and I need to let it keep running, but I also need to close down my remote desktop session.   How can I keep that IE session running if I close the remote desktop session?

you need to lock the remote pc to keep the session going

If you choose disconnect and not Log Off, your session will remain active.
Is this not the case for you?

The only way is to disconnect.  Hit the 'x' in the upper right of the window.  If you choose logout, you'll end your tasks.

So clicking the "x" will keep the session running?   Great!

Hit the 'x' in the top corner of your RDP session.  If you don't see the x, then move your mouse to the center top of the screen and wait for the box to dropdown.  Then choose x there.

as mentioned above, just close the connection (close RDP window pressing X in the top part of your active RDP window/screen).
Also you should set/check "end a disconnected session" limit on the terminal server (if you are connected to terminal server) under Start>Administrative tools>Terminal services configuration>connections>double-click on the connection>tab Sessions
