    I wonder if it's possible to leave a RDP-0-session (console) without locking
    (i don't want to log out !) ? I also wonder if it's possible to run
    RDP-console unlocked ?

    Sincerely

    Locking and logging out are two diffrent thiings

    I have RDPed into servers many many times and when I ended my session it
    never logged the consoles session out.

    What are you trying to acomplish?

    why not?
    just disconnect instead of logging out
    the session wil stay open until you reconnect and log out
    or until the server gets rebooted

    locking the session will not log you out either

    Ok, but the local console is locked (if you are at the physical screen) and
    I want that to be open after I disconnected the session so local people can
    access the console without logging on.

    So you trust local users to physically touch your server with admin access,
    but you don't trust them enough to let them know the name and password for
    the account?

    go look at VNC. that should fit your need.

    I have probably said this a million times, but....servers are not
    workstations.
    You should never really need to touch a running server excepty for disaster
    recovery and hardware modification.
