After using Remote Desktop to connect to a remote PC, the remote PC'smonitor does not go back into standby mode

Posted: 01-06-2009, 04:00 PM
My home computer monitor will go into standby after 30 minutes.

When I use remote desktop to connect to my home computer, the monitor
comes out of standby mode and shows the following login prompt:

"This computer is in use and has been locked.
Only xxx\yyy or an administrator can unlock this computer.
Username
Password"

The monitor never goes into standby mode again, even after i
disconnect from my home computer. =(

My office computer doesn't have the same problem. After i remote
desktop to my office computer, the monitor eventually goes into
standby mode.

So i have been cracking my head and still haven't found any solution.
I've made sure that the screen saver starts in 5 minutes and the
monitor is set to standby in 30 minutes. But the screen saver never
starts and the monitor never goes into standby mode.

I've even tried copying the registry settings for my user profile into
the default profile, but still no luck =(

I know i could turn off the monitor in advance but that isn't really
the solution im looking for.


Thanks in advance for any help provided!
