Remote Desktop Connection going into standby

Hi Experts,

When I have a Remote Desktop Connection running after about 10 minutes it goes into standby and I have to re-enter my password to open the connection. How can I set it so that it remains open until I close it?

Timeouts for disconnected and/or idle sessions when using terminal services can be set via instruction here.


Another option is to use a utility to move the mouse every so often,  Google xumouse for a download if you do not have access to make these changes.
It's not the RD that's the problem -- it's the setting on the computer that you are controlling. There are 2 places where you may need to change something:
1. In screen saver settings, and you'll see a checkbox for somehting like "ask for password on wake up"
2. in power settings, there is an option for the time before the PC goes to sleep (standby), and there is the with the same checkbox

So you either have to uncheck those, or increase the screen saver and standby times
I think it´s the screensaver of the remote maschine, probably the default windows screen saver. Just turn it of. If you are usind mandatory profile you have to change it there.
