Automatically unlock remote computers screen after a RDP session?
Posted on 2012-03-19
I use a windows 7 Pro computer to remotely log onto another computer that runs some automated tasks (remote onto the pc to add/edit the tasks) The remote PC also runs windows 7 Pro. I’m using windows inbuilt remote desktop / RDP.
The problem is when I close the remote desktop session the remote computers screen gets automatically locked and tasks that are set to run automatically fail. Most of the tasks are run by using automation anywhere software which works by auto opening programmes, entering keyboard commands and mouse movements so the screen needs to remain unlocked for tasks to run.
Is there a way of automatically unlocking the screen when the remote desktop/ RDP session ends?. There’s only ever the one user account that is used to log onto the remote computer .
I thought maybe I could automatically run a script and pass the user credentials but not sure how. Ideally I don’t want to use alternative remote control software as we want to keep machines as clean as possible and already use logmein but this seems to have the same issue of automatically locking the remote machine. Any suggestions?
