Citrix releases a new tool called KeepMeLoggedIn

KeepMeLoggedIn allows a user to quickly open published applications by leveraging session sharing. KeepMeLoggedIn keeps a user session opened after the last user process exits; it then exits when the timeout value expires causing the user session to close.

If a new application launches while KeepMeLoggedIn is still running, session sharing kicks in and the launched application should open quickly on the client machine (by avoiding opening a new session and re-using the existing user session).
KeepMeLoggedIn does not have any visible window and only works for ICA seamless sessions. It exits automatically if the session is an ICA published desktop or an RDP session.
