Desktop goes to lock screen when I remote in and try to do anything

I have a couple Windows 10 computers that when I remote to them, as soon as I even move the mouse to do anything, the desktop locks and I have to have the user unlock it.  Then as soon as I try to do something again, it locks up the desktop again.  It's a never ending cycle.

I have uninstalled and re-installed the Dameware client on the machines a couple of times, but it still isn't working.

Any ideas?

Dameware 12.0.4 via a Centralized Server

  • gneal1, the only time I see this is when VNC or RDP are being used.  Can you make sure you are using the mirror driver?

  • Connect your remote desktop using tools like logmein, R-HUB remote support servers, Teamviewer etc. and follow these steps from preventing it from frequent lockouts:  Right click the start button > power options > Additional power settings > Change Plan Settings > change advanced power settings. expand Sleep. expand System unattended sleep timeout. change both values to zero for never or set your preferred value.
