Glad you got your answers Brad - I just started playing with the built in RD Client in build 7077, and I noticed this behavior now as well - but sine I am doing it on my laptop that is 2 feet away I was able to play - I saw the laptop go to the login screen, and when I manually logged into the laptop- the RD session abruptly closed. Lepoilu has it 100% correct.

yes i was expecting it to leave the screen up which is why i wrongly assumed it was logging off completely

Hey guys, thought I would bump this thread rather than start a new one.

I'm having a similar situation. I'm running Windows 7 on my HTPC. I have it set to not ask for the user password when I boot the machine, so it goes right into windows and opens media center. Since this is an HTPC, I don't keep a mouse or keyboard on it.

I use my laptop to remote in whenever I need a mouse or keyboard. Since I am using RDC, it requires the password to be put in, which is fine. Everything works well. However, when I close the RDC, I'm left with my HTPC sitting at the user login screen requiring the password.

Right now, I then have to go get a keyboard, plug it in and type in the password, which is obviously a pain and defeats the purpose of remoting in in the first place!

So, anyway to fix this? Essentially, when I close the RDC, I just want it to automatically log back in so I can use the HTPC with just the remote again.

Thanks!

**EDIT**

Well, I actually found a workable solution from a tom's hardware article on XP from 2005!

Here is what I did:

On the Host computer, open a text editor and create the a bat file with the following code:
Quote:
@echo off
tscon 1 /DEST:console /PASSWORD:xxxxx
%windir%\ehome\ehshell.exe /directmedia:general
the tscon command will restore the previous session as if no one had ever remoted in.
the ehshell.exe command launches windows media center in full screen

I saved the file to my desktop. When I'm ready to log out of the Host machine, rather than just disconnect, I run the bat file as an administrator. It closes the connection, restores the previous session and launches media center in full screen!

the only minor issue is that the bat file window stays open in the background so long as media center is running, but I don't think that's going to be much of an issue!

start %windir%\ehome\ehshell.exe /directmedia:general

change the batch file to include the bold red word in red to have the batch file disappear.
