Force user to log off of terminal service session

All,
How do I disable a user from clicking on the "X" button in the upper right
hand corner of a terminal service session. I want to force them to log off.

You cannot totally prevent users from disconnecting (they can
always just turn of their clients, or unplug the network cable),
but you can make life hard for them :-)
One approach is to put a short time-out limit on disconnected
sessions, and have the sessions reset automatically when the time-
out limit is reached. With this configuration, there is nothing to
be gained by disconnecting, since the session will be gone the next
time the user tries to reconnect. Note that resetting a session
will cause all data that has not been saved to be lost, so be sure
to inform your users before you implement this!

The other thing you can do is hack the rdp client to get rid of the
X-box in the rdp window. Detailed information here:
