Blank screen on host

     So, I want to access my home computer from work; when I'm updating financial software I don't want kids at home to see what I'm doing; I select the option to blank the "host" screen, but what I then see on my computer at work is a blank dark screen with the words "this computer is being remote-controlled". That's what I want them to see at home - but obviously I want to see the normal desktop.

What am I doing wrong?  Why am I seeing the blank screen and not seeing the desktop?
