Windows 2012 RDP Console Session logs off

We have a Windows Server 2012 R2 server.  We have an application (First Class Web Services) on this server that requires a batch file to run a command with multiple switches, this batch files opens a command window and stays open, if you close this command window the application stops.  

Unfortunately this needs to be launched in a session, so we log into this server via RDP (mstsc /admin) and run the batch file and then disconnect (not log off).  A little while later the application stops working, and when we log back in to the rdp session (again with mstsc /admin) the command window is gone (as is any other windows that may have been left open).  

We believe the session is getting logged off automatically. (EDIT: I've check any policies, local and group policies, and there are no settings applied to limit a session and auto logoff).  How can we stop this from happening?

Thanks Experts!

Have you tried running your CMD script via Task Scheduler and selecting 'Run whether user is logged on or not' and ticking the box 'run with highest privileges'

You also have the ability to run your script with switches too.

Awesome Netflo, I have no idea why I didn't think of that!  I'll give this a try right now and I'll update in a few hours to see if it continues to run without issue - thanks!
