I am aware you can set session time limits for all idle/disconnected users on Server 2012/2016 etc, however I was wondering if there is a way to end disconnected/idle session only for some users and not all? Reason being, we'd love to have the policy in place for most users however we need a single user to remain logged in and disconnected running an app in the background that is required, and thus cannot be affected by time limits.


If you set your desired session time limits under User Configuration in a GPO then you can use Security Filtering on the GPO to apply it to only those users who you want to be affected by the time limits.
