On the AD server, open Group Policy Management Console, add new GPO:

User Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Remote Desktop Services\Remote Desktop Session Host\Session Time Limits

Assign to only that user.

Drag GPO to the RDServer.

In group policy, create a new policy to apply to the user in question -  go to User Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Remote Desktop Services\Remote Desktop Session Host\Session Time Limits.

Then configure:

Set time limit for disconnected sessions - Enabled, 10 minutes

Set time limit for active but idle Remote Desktop Services sessions - Enabled, 10 minutes

Terminate session when time limits are reached - Enabled

You can also configure these settings in Active Directory Users and Computers as per MS article: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc754272(v=ws.11).aspx

Just change the security filtering for the GPO from authenticated users (default) to the user account in question. That way it will only apply to that particular user account.

Edit GPO
Right-click root of GPO and select security
Remove Apply Policy right from Authenticated Users (Leave Read!!!)
Add this user and tick Apply Policy

Hi Maurice,

If you are not a domain user, you won't have any access to Group Policy.

You will need to talk to whoever administers your IT systems.
