Well, the tray icon (assuming a winvnc server here) goes black...
Are you requesting a message that only shows up on the server's side (i.e.,
not transferred to the client)?

You could always set it up to disable local control (keyboard and mouse)
while you're connected.  And hide the power/reset buttons.
