I run Windows in RDesktop mostly for e-mail and IM (responding to events). Corporate policy is to lock inactive desktops and sessions at 10 minutes in case someone walks away without locking their screen. My RDesktop session locks itself even when I'm active at my PC.

I would like for my RDesktop session to stay active if my Linux desktop is active, even if its window doesn't have focus. I don't want to click on it every 10 minutes-- Could RDesktop do something equivalent to keep it alive? Perhaps a keepalive={intervsl} parameter?
