Remote desktop Connections RRS feed

  • Question

  • My remote desktop connection gets disconnected when my machine goes into sleep-mode. Is there a way to prevent this from happening?

    Thanks in advance.

  • No - unfortunately as soon as the machine goes to sleep all network activity is halted, causing all programs to disconnect and then (depending on the program) attempt to reconnect when the machine comes out of sleep mode. The only way you could keep a connection alive is by disabling sleep mode.

    Note that this holds true for "real remote desktop", VPN connections and even some browser sessions.
