I've got a 2008r2 server that is being used for remote desktop. One particular user (last one added) is being logged out due to inactivity after a very short time.
No other user having this problem.
Where can I set/change/ fix this?
Thanks!

Check the gpresult of the new user and an old user. Apply the same GPO's on the new user,

That means you have a policy group in place with a timer for logging inactivity.
Check your GPO. or RDP settings in case you have TS

An update & a few more details on this. This was at a remote office, with one user & has operated without incident for years. They added a 2nd employee & handed down old computer to new guy, who was been logging into hand me down computer as original user. Once I had set him up to log in using his own credentials, problem has disappeared.
How could that be?

Commented:
GPO is applied based on domain user. The original user didn't have the GPO applied.
That's why I asked you to compare both gpresults.
