I am at home and I remoted into my PC at work and launched the vsphere client.  I want to log into my server but the control-alt-insert doesn't seem to respond.  Of course at work when I am at my workstation it works fine.  Is there a different sequence of keys or a different way to do it?

Depending what software you use to remote desktop to work machine there should be something to check that sends all keyboard commands to remote machine.

Doesn't work...you just have to click the VM menu & Guest then CTL+ALT+DEL.

I have the same issue via RDP. I use Ctrl-Alt-End. This combination was designed to send Ctrl-Alt-Delete to the RDP window, so it does cause the RDP machine to also pop up with the security window, but I just escape past it, then I have the login prompt in the VM console session. A little faster than clicking in the console window menu but still kind of annoying.
