Disable auto log off one specific user windows 2012

Having tried to remove auto logout or session timeout for a specific user using,

  1. The windows group policy which did not show the option of excluding a specific user from auto logoff

  2. Have tried local policy settings too didnt work

  3. Tried bypassing via via Active directory it too did not work

  4. Have also tried moving the user to a different OU.


NOTE : trying to implement these using remote desktop.


So on googling came to figure out that we cannot implement these settings via remote desktop host configuration as Group policy takes precedence over the same.

Kindly suggest on how do i proceed, if this is possible.

Thanks for your time.
