also see my posting in the german forum for this: http://www.virtualbox.org/discussion/2/663
i think having access to the console of a vm via rdp is a great feature.
it would be even more great (very nice for VDI, Virtual Desktop Infrastructure -> http://www.vmware.com/partners/vdi.html) , if rdp access would not only be available if the VM is being powerdt on, but also when it is powered off - i.e. don't get disconnected when VM reboots/powers down.
the real killer here would be some feature, to add virtual power buttogns to that virtual rdp screen - so that after the admin adding a vm and "enabling the desktop" , the user could power on, suspend, reset, stop his own VM just via rdp - without any additional tools.
