Running RF on a VM manage via RDP

I have my application under test running on a VM and have RF installed on this machine along with all my libraries and test cases.

Ultimately my test cases will be kicked off by Team City or similar CI application but that wont be for a while. I wanted to be able to login to the VM using RDP and then kickoff my tests then just have my RDP session running in the background to occasionally observe progress and carry on with other work on my own computer. If I click away from the RDP session my test will not continue as my mouse is no longer present on the VM.
Furthermore it would be good to disconnect from the RDP session but with the VM still running my tests cases.

Lastly when running RF from cmd line (not RDP) how can I quit my test as RF has control of the mouse.
