Remote desktop session got locked up after certain time

Hi there,


I have a test set which has a lot of test cases. I launched the test set from QAComplete, but from the screenshots in the run history reports I see half of the test cases were failed because of remote desktop were locked. Is there any settings I need to configure to keep the remote session always unlocked? I have a script to keep the remote session active all the time if I run the test set directly from TestComplete, but how can I keep the remote session active through QAComplete?


Thanks in advance!

Desktops getting locked are usually either a local setting on the desktop for timing out on inactivity or in a network security group policy.  You should probably check, first, with your network/security adminsitrators to determine if there is a group policy and, if so, if it can be turned off for your automation environment.

Why automate?  I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy.  Sleep is a requirement.  So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group.
