    As I'm switching back and forth it's annoying to constantly be having to retype my credentials if I don't click it for 5 mins.

    Now I have 2 vps's I will be using this will get especially annoying.

    So how can I make it so I only have to login once for the day?

    This used to happen on its own sometimes but I don't know how.

    remote desktop on your PC should save the login/pass to the other PCs you're connecting to, you shouldn't have to retype it every time, at least it does in Windows 7

    This is referencing the server OS your VPS is hosting. Server 2003/2008 follow the same steps. Your server side idle time must be changed to allow the RDP client more idle time before automatically closing the connection.

    As for re-entering your credentials every time, you can click "Save this connection" in your RDP application Window to store settings. You can also use "Save As..." to create a RDP shortcut that uses that specific server setting at the time of saving. This is good if you RDP into multiple servers.

    You way didn't work but found out a simpler way...

    Just went to screensaver and unticked 'on resume display login screen'.
