I have some running foreground programs that I wish to finish even if I log off my RDP session. For some reason if I log off for too long and come back, everything is gone, including open folders and text files. This doesn't happen if I log back on immediately.

Is there a group policy or other setting that's telling Windows to close all my programs after I log off?
