Remote Desktop Connection RDC kills monitor on remote machine

When i create a VPN and log back into my office i can work fine; i log off fine and kill the VPN.  But when i go into the office to work my monitor is not getting a video signal and the only way to get it back up is to do a hard shutdown of the machine.  I'm convinced this is directly resultant from the RDC.  Please help.

Turn off acpi settings. Enter your PCs BIOS and turn off the powermanagement settings you can find there, particularly those that have to do with your display. Something which can help too is to download and install new drivers for your motherboard.

Does this happen only when you use RDC or have you noticed it at other times?  You might want to go into the options of RDC and change the color settings to the lowest resolution and if you are still using any power management, disable hibernation if that is set.

This only happens with RDC, i've checked all the settings and it still happens.

Try turning off your monitor before you leave work to isolate if it is a monitor problem or a PC problem.  I assume you have updated to the latest video driver?  It sounds like a problem with either power settings, resolution, or video drivers.

Checked all the power settings.  Turned off the monitor before logging in.  Tried just disconnecting instead of logging off.  Nothing works.  Any thinking outside of the box solutions would be helpful.

You might want to try different settings using the policy editor. Using GPO, navigate to "user configuration", "Administrative templates", "Windows Components", "Terminal Services". Now set the rules, like "full control without user permission".
