Client computer logs off when connected via remote desktop

I connected to my home computer from work via remote desktop both computers running windows xp pro, the idea was for me to show my partner who was sat at the computer at home how to do something, but as i connected, the computer at home went back to the log on screen so she was unable to see what i was doing (i had full access at this point), when she went to log back on it disconnected me, any one know why this happened and what settings do i have to change to enable this?  Thank you

Only one user can use a Windows XP Professional-based computer at a time, either by logging on to the console or by connecting remotely.

Remote Assistance may work better for you.

If you're feeling bold you can enable concurrent remote desktop sessions on XP.

Or you can chose for another means to connect remotly, a good alternative for windows is TightVNC

Just open up group policy editor (gpedit.msc) and select \computer configuration\administrative templates\windows components\terminal services\ and the value is "Sets rules for remote control of terminal services user sessions", Enable it and select the value accordingly...for example, if you want to view AND control the session without permission simply select "Full Control Wihout User's Permission".....you get the picture.
