    What PC you RDP'ing to...that PC needs to grant you permission.

    Are you the systems administrator? If someone else is, they would be the one to talk to.
    If you are the sysadmin, check your group policy settings. There are auto logoff settings in group policy that might be forcing a log off after a certain amount of time.

      Your systems administrator might have a group policy setting to limit the amount of time you are allowed to stay logged in. Is it always the same amount of time? E.g. Does it kick you off exactly 1 hour after you logged in, regardless of what you're doing?
      Best thing to do is to talk to your sys admin about it.

        I dunno, send him an email?

        There's really not much that can be done on the server side..... You could probably script something on your computer to log back into rdp at regular intervals.

          After re-reading your last comment, it is almost definitely a group policy setting that is logging you off. The server is closing stale sessions, and when you disconnect, it marks it as stale after 10 minutes and logs off. The only thing you can do about that is to tell your sys admin that it is causing problems for you and ask him to fix it.

            You could maybe minimize the rdp window instead of disconnecting it.... That way it would still be "connected".

                Okay. That's probably why a keep-alive app on the server program won't work.... because it isn't receiving anything from your connected computer over the network.
