I've been trialling RU for a few days now and am very impressed, only issue I have is that if I attempt a remote control session with a laptop that has its lid closed, it will connect but give me a blank screen.
Opening the laptop up refreshes the connection and it works perfectly... unless you close it again in which case it will immediately freeze until the lid is opened back up. The connection never drops out, but the display won't refresh unless the lid is left open.
I've had some level of luck prodding it to work by switching the display option from "Entire Display" to selecting the actual machine display only, but that only seems to work sometimes.
Nick, if you close the lid on your laptop it most likely goes to the hibernation state. In this state the network activity may be suspended or become intermittent (like only to turn on briefly to check email etc.).
Just tested on some other machines, seems to definitely be an issue for any machine that doesn't have its display turned on. For desktops the screen is just woken up as you would expect, but laptops with closed lids (that are not asleep) won't respond.
<censored>/Other connection methods don't have a problem. Any suggestions? This could be a pretty major issue for me as a huge number of my clients use almost all laptops and will often lock/close them.
Issue is only for viewing screen as well. Remote terminal/exec/registry and everything else works fine.
