I'm using Remote Desktop connection to connect to a Windows Server box, on which I am an admit. If I'm idle for a few minutes, it locks me out (killing file transfers, which is a problem), and a few minutes after that, it severs my connection. Where can I find the settings that govern these things to stop that from happening? I want it to let me stay connected, regardless if I'm idle.

look in the sessions tab in the properties of the windows account you are using. There are idle session limit and active session limit properties you can change.

You can also do it via GP http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc758177%28WS.10%29.aspx
