It's not possible with gpo or any settings from Microsoft, you can try with some third party tools to achieve your request.

Why are you trying to prevent users from closing the remote session?  Is it so that you can keep a program active?  If your users are using the remote server for a single application (or even just a few applications) why not simply use RemoteApp's instead of full fledged desktop sessions?

What is RemoteApp?

it_saigeDeveloperCommented:
In a nutshell, a RemoteApp is a special teminal services session designed to make an application on the terminal server appear as if it is running on the local users computer.

RemoteApp programs are programs that are accessed remotely through Terminal Services and appear as if they are running on the end user's local computer. Instead of being presented to the user in the desktop of the remote terminal server, the RemoteApp program is integrated with the client's desktop, running in its own resizable window with its own entry in the taskbar. Users can run RemoteApp programs side-by-side with their local programs. If a user is running more than one RemoteApp program on the same terminal server, the RemoteApp programs will share the same Terminal Services session.
