Force Remote Desktop logoff after specified time

I have set the parameters through both gpedit.msc for Computer as well as User and have even tried to do this through regedit, but they are being ignored. I've set time limit of 1 minute to disconnect a terminal services connection for a) disconnected session, b) idle session, c) session time limit. However, the session stays logged in forever. I can't seem to find similar issues... all of the posts I run into are people asking how to disconnect sessions after a specified time and the simple solution that is always given is to do what I've done above, but no such luck in my case. Thoughts?

Software/Hardware used:
Windows XP Pro 32-bit on VMware Server (Dell hardware)
