You can't. Off hand, for servers you tend to login and disconnect, but never log off. I believe you can also make the process a windows service.

But I know in UNIX there is something called "background job" that allows users to log off the machine with job/process keeping running. Does windows have the similar thing ?

The closest thing is, as someone has already mentioned, a Windows "service". A number of projects have been established to enable this; see, for example, here.
