remote desktop user being logged out?

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?

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.
