How to disconnect a Remote Application but not close it down

Need to disconnect a remote application but leave it running? 

By default clicking on the cross on the remote app will shut the app down and close the session. But what if the app is still processing data and you need to leave the office? Solution?  Within the app press “Ctrl+Alt+End” this will bring up the Terminal Server task manager prompt. Clicking close here will prompt you to disconnect but leave the applications running. Head on home, reconnect and carry on where you left off.
