How to get a Server 2008 std that is a domain controller, to NOT auto logout the console session

At a school, we have a Server 2008 domain controller. Proprietary software from accounting vendor has to be running, and started from administrator account. I was able to get the server to auto log in as administrator, and launch required software, but something somewhere, disconnects the console session, after a period of inactivity. Approximately 15 minutes.... I have disabled screen saver, changed power settings to never sleep, never turn monitor off. I can lock session, but after 15 minutes or so, the session is terminated, stopping software. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Do you have another server or workstation that can do this task.  I don't know about you but having a DC logged as Administrator in is a huge security risk.

Have you checked with the vendor to see if you can run the application as a service?

I agree that it is a security risk, but this is supposed to be a stop-gap measure, until vendor updates software, so it can be run as a service. The server is in a locked room...
I would start by running a RSoP (Resultant Set of Policy) scan on the server to see if there are any other policies at play here.

Did that before posting here. I don't see anything that is relevant. I also read that all policies may not be reported there...Any additional thoughts?

Found it....Was a locally installed program, that was used for a domain policy. So, result was, there was no policy in place causing this, but the application installation had written an entry in the registry, that ran it locally. Thanks
