How to prevent Remote Desktop Timeout?

By EdNetman ·
I have a bit of a problem. We have a server with a few security applications running on them. We connect to the server using Remote Desktop When we connect to the server and initiate the program, sometimes we are timed out before it finishes. There is a GPO that limits connects to 30 minutes when idle. Some of the scans we do take a few hours, so we will minimize the connection while we do other work. This is usually when the timeout occurs. But the software is running, so I don?t understand why it thinks that the connection is idle! I have tried running and old school style mouse trembler from within the session, and it doesn?t seem to help.

Is there any way to force the connection to stay active? Does anyone know of a program or script that will make the remote desktop connection think it is being actively used even when minimized?
