@Dan any links to the Microsoft recommendation you mention (regular reboot)?

+1 for creativity. I can set up a load balancer and that's honestly the way to go.

@usr, that's definitely the goal, but not the reality in my experience. Bad software can leave the system objectively "worse-off" from a memory management point of view until restart.

regarding the printer drivers, etc: I did read either here or somewhere else reputable that MS made great strides in this department - and in reducing need for reboot in general - between Windows 2000 Server and Windows Server 20032R2 SP3. So I'm not sure that the drivers issue has relevance. Actually I've noticed newer versions of Windows (Server) seem to handle print drivers and spooling surprisingly well.

@usr do you have any evidence for this?

comment Is there any way to “save” a disconnected RDP sesion's state in a manner analogous to ACPI hibernate for a regular PC?
Thanks for the suggestion on the drain mode. That's a great idea.

@strongline to be clear, I plan on implementing the suggestion of automatic reboots and setting expectations. In the best case, this would be end of the story. However, if this kind of tool existed, it would be nice if I could at least make a "best effort" at saving any disconnected sessions prior to reboot to pacify those users who did not log off
