Mouse disappears in Remote Desktop Session!

In Terminal Services, my mouse keeps disappearing.  I use the Remote Desktop MMC Console.  The server/client I am connected too still gets any clicking or keyboard commands entered, but the cursor for the mouse disappears.  Does anyone know why and how to rectify this?  You have to shut down the MMC Console and open it back up.  It is extremely annoying.

Do you have more than one session open, with different machines?

Whenever I am connected to multiple machines?

I am connected to \\server1 and then I switch over and connect to \\server2.  When I'm working in \\server2 and \\server1 has a screen saver kick on, then I lose my mouse while working in \\server2.  If I go back to \\server1 and click out of the screen saver, then I have no more problems until the same thing happens again.  I'm guessing that's what's going on.

Good luck,

Jared

i use terminal services client and attach to multiple ones frequently, perhaps you should use this instead if your problem is related to multiple servers under that mmc console.

I know this has nothing to do with remote desktop , how ever if you go to :

http://www.dameware.com/

they have mini remote and remote NT utilities which will allow you to control remote computers a lot easier, also there is a program called vnc which i think is at the following URL :

I hope this helps!

Kind regards
