Microsoft Windows automation - RDP ?

I am wanting to automate some common tasks I perform.

I do a lot of RDP (remote desktop), sometimes 3 levels deep.  I would like to automate some of this (auto-provide server IP, username, password) and use RDP "in-memory" - in other words, not necessarily invoke the GUI for RDP?

This is potentially for 100's of different logins, across QA, CERT and possibly PRODUCTION servers.

Right now we have an XLS spreadsheet we use to keep track of IP addresses, usernames and logins.  It's a pain.

Third-party tools such as VisionApp and Remote Desktop Manager are able to store passwords and automate logons.

Microsoft provides the Remote Desktop Connection Manager tool (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=21101), but it isn't nearly as robust.
