How to keep my hardened VMs' RDP session from being timed out

In our hardened environment, I can't seem to change my RDP
setting such that it does not time out every 3-5 minutes.

Is there a freeware or utility that can simulate some activity
to keep it 'active' ?

I go through a secure Jump Host & then Rdp into numerous
VMs

Forgot to say that I use a browser (IE) to get  into my Jump Hosts,
then Rdp from there.  So this freeware tool needs to simulate some
activity in the IE browser.

Often get hundreds of emails & calls & when I return, my RDP
session is lost & have to re-login.  If only I can keep it active for
30 minutes, that would be great

Give me till this weekend to try it out: excellent, some sort of
keyboard activities is what I'm looking for.  When I ran a
looping script in the Rdp session, it still times out.

Just tried mouse jiggler with "Zen jiggler" checked as well:
it did not stop the Novell Privileged User Manager in IE
(which further RDP into VMs) from timing out.

This Novell product is quite an alien product
